This was my mother's favorite blueberry pie recipe and is the best I have ever tasted. Most I have found are too runny, but by cooking this on the stove, it thickens up and ends up with just the right firmness. She always made this with fresh berries, as I have, so not sure how it would turn out using frozen berries. We buy real nice fresh blueberries year-around at Costco here.

Fresh Blueberry Pie Recipe

1 baked 9" pie shell
3 cups fresh blueberries
1 cup sugar
2/3 cup water
3 tbsp. cornstarch
1 tsp. butter
1 tsp. lemon rind
1 tbsp. lemon juice

Mix 1 cup of the blueberries with rest of the ingredients and bring to boil, stirring, until thick. Add the other 2 cups berries. Fill pie crust and chill until firm. Serve with whipped cream for
the crowning touch.

I appreciated the tip about sauteing onions and celery and saving them in the freezer for cooking later. But if you also want to keep FRESH CELERYin the crisper drawer wrap it in heavy duty aluminum foil and it will stay crisp and fresh for weeks and maybe longer. This is great for salads or making celery sticks to snack on or other things you might want to make with fresh celery. I don't know for sure how long it lasts but I have been doing this for several years and I always have crisp celery in my drawer. I don't know why this works but it does.
