Callie Daniels and Tenille Moss are the real-life Cookin’ Cousins who blog about food and Honeyville Farms.
The Cookin’ Cousins always have food ideas that they share on their blog, honeyvillefarms.blogspot.com
This holiday season, they have three great ideas that range from food you make to share with others, to products that will let others make their own food.
This year, the gift list includes:
1.. Microwave Popcorn Popper
Put 1/4 cup-1/3 cup of popcorn in bowl, stick it in the microwave, and watch the magic happen! So easy and tastes delicious
2. Berry Pie
2 cups Honeyville’s Freeze Dried Blueberries (not rehydrated)
2 cups Honeyville’s Freeze Dried Raspberries (not rehydrated)
2 and 1/2 cups Honeyville’s Freeze Dried Blackberries (not rehydrated)
1 cup Sugar
3/4 cup plus 3 Tbsp Berry Water, divided *See Note in Recipe
1/4 cup Corn Starch
1 tsp Cinnamon
1 Tbsp Lemon Juice
2 premade pie crusts (I used a premade frozen pie shell for the bottom layer and a refrigerated pie crust that you roll out for the top)
Milk for brushing top crust
In a bowl reconstitute the berries. When the Berries are hydrated (it takes a few minutes), carefully strain them but reserve some of the water–about 1 cup. *This is the Berry Water. Set aside 1 and 1/2 cups of Berries. Put the remaining Berries, 3/4 cup Berry Water, Sugar, Lemon Juice and Cinnamon in a saucepan. Stir to combine. Bring mixture to a boil then reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes. In a separate bowl combine the Corn Starch and 3 Tbsp Berry Water. Once mixed, slowly pour/stir into the simmering berries. Cook 1 minute longer stirring constantly. Once cooled, carefully fold in the remaining berries. Pour filling into pie crust. Put the second pie crust over the filled pie. Make sure you either do a lattice top or cut steam vents in the top crust. I chose to cut strips of pie dough and make a lattice top.
