Hello everyone, I just wanted to share some pies I made last weekend to take to a summer party for my office. The week before we had cultured and churned butter, and rendered some leaf lard, to prepare for making the crusts. One pie was blueberry-rhubarb with the rhubarb from my mom’s garden. The other was peach-blueberry with local fruit from the farmers market. These pies turned out well and were delicious to eat. We also brought a jar of homemade creme fraiche for people to spoon on their pie slices.

I posted a little write up on the construction of these pies on my blog:

Happy Baking,
