How to make an easy homemade blueberry pie filling for one pie or dessert. Small batch recipe using fresh or frozen blueberries for a sweet and tarty treat.

Blueberries are quite possibly my favorite snacking berries; they’re full of antioxidants and they’re just plain delicious. Pie happens to be a family favorite too; so while it’s hard to do, I’ve got to stop eating blueberries long enough to make a small batch of blueberry pie filling , along with blueberry muffins and our favorite no bake blueberry dessert before the berries disappear. blueberry filling for pie in a mason jar with a wooden spoon and fresh blueberries

‘Cause you know… Homemade is so much better. And homemade pie filling is so much better than store bought cans. It just is.

Making your own blueberry filling for pie really isn’t difficult. It requires a little stove time with constant stirring, but really it isn’t bad at all; believe me, I’d tell you if it were, because I’m not a fan of standing in front of a stove for long periods of time.

You only need a few ingredients, and besides the blueberries, you should already have everything else in your kitchen cabinets. What I love about this recipe is it’s small batch (so no canning required), and you can use it for all sorts of dessertswooden spoon in mason jar of homemade blueberry pie filling

Whisk together the water and corn starch first, ensuring there are little to no lumps. Then mix the water/corn starch mixture together with the lemon juice and sugar in a medium saucepan on medium heat.

Add the puréed blueberries and whole blueberries to the mixture.

Cook the entire mixture for about 10 to 15 minutes, stirring constantly until the mixture begins to thicken.

Remove from the heat and add to an already cooked pie crust. Or if you’re adding the pie filling to a chilled dessert, allow the filling to cool before doing so. Wooden spoon in mason jar of freshly made blueberry filling for pie
