Well [In reply to] Can't Post

To my mind nothing beats a slice of pork pie every week or so.

I like many pies, but a particular favorite... [In reply to] Can't Post

Elderberry pie! Elderberries usually need to be picked by hand as they are not a very good commercial crop. Also, they are a pain to separate and prepare, but the results are worth it. We actually lucked out and just happen to have an elderberry bush growing next to our garage.

Almost any fruit pie. [In reply to] Can't Post

I voted for blueberry, in honor of the numerous birthday pies I had growing up. I am allergic to eggs, so no B'day cakes. I am also a January baby, so when my dad would ask what kind of pie I wanted for my birthday, I always said blueberry, because that was a little more exotic to me than apple or cherry. I don't know where he found them in mid-20th century, small town Pennsylvania in mid-winter, but he always did. And we always had a big scoop of vanilla ice cream on it.

A couple of other yummy fruit pies I have come to love since I have lived in North Carolina are strawberry-rhubarb and raspberry-peach. All fresh fruits and so delicious!

I agree with this statement [In reply to] Can't Post

Any kind of fruit pie is alright with me. I admit I haven't heard of several of the pies listed, so I'm guessing it's a European/American thing.

What!?! no coconut?... [In reply to] Can't Post

and no chocolate creme, either? Tsk tsk. I am not a big fan of fruit-filled pies. Cobbler, on the other hand, is a different story!

tart cherry pie - with Michigan cherries would be great - topped with vanilla ice cream! [In reply to] Can't Post

Tart cherry pie or cherry cobbler was one of a handful of foods I could gorge on as a child. Cherries are plentiful in Michigan ... in fact we had a tree in our backyard from which we would harvest.

As a young teen, I'd take the bus downtown with my best friend Mary and we'd stop at Kresge's lunch counter and I'd order cherry pie and lemonade. The waitresses almost refused to serve me they thought it sounded so awful together but I loved it.

rhubarb is pretty good, too.

have you ever had Mulberry pie? [In reply to] Can't Post

They tried to cultivate silk worms for awhile in Kalamazoo MI in the early 20th Century and the city is full of mulberry trees. They are a mess and a half but we tried mulberry pie after reading Euell Gibbon's, Stalking the Wild Asparagus and really liked it. We always went mulberry picking every summer when they got ripe and made pies from them.

Any meat pie [In reply to] Can't Post

To me pies are savory and filled with meat, my favourite being steak and ale pie. Though game meat pie is great as well.

As for fruit pie i haven't really tried too many - cherry pie to me is nice but its not a 'real' pie, lol.

Huckleberry pie...yum [In reply to] Can't Post

I actually voted for blueberry, but as huckleberries are related to blueberries I figured that was the closest. Freshly picked huckleberries made into a pie is one of the best pies ever! Maybe with a dollop of vanilla ice cream.

when I was 8... [In reply to] Can't Post

I had a Huckleberry Hound lunch box. Back when lunch boxes were metal and had matching thermos bottles in them. :-)

But I don't think I've ever heard of huckleberries growing anywhere near where I have lived.

I remember those! [In reply to] Can't Post

I had a plaid lunchbox--my favorite color Smile

There are lots of huckleberries near where I live, at least when in season. One of the best places to pick them is around Mt. Adams in Washington State. My grandmother would take my brother and I every summer and we would pick mass amounts. She would make pie, jam, cobbler, and then freeze the rest, if there were any left (my brother and I ate a lot)!

It sounds like they might be similar to blueberries [In reply to] Can't Post

Have you ever read Blueberries for Sal? I love that book and used to read it to my students during a unit I called a 'rainbow of books'. Each book had one of the color words in the title: blue, green, yellow, orange, red, purple.

I had a friend who lived on the Iron Range of Minnesota and she said she was always afraid to go blueberry picking because she thought she might meet a bear. I said she HAD to get Blueberries for Sal.

Mmmm, piiiie... [In reply to] Can't Post

My favorites are lemon - meringue or chiffon, key lime, and pecan. Another favorite is something you may not have heard of: buttermilk. It's sounds disgusting, but it's heaven in a crust Evil. It's similar to custard pie...but not.

I don't think I'd ever warm to meat pies, but I discovered the wonders of leek and potato pie in England. I wish I could find that here. Better yet, I wish I could go back to the UK sometime. Cool

hmm that'd interesting, that, to me, doesn't even remotely resemble a pie! [In reply to] Can't Post

Maybe a UK/American split..
Here in the UK it must have a -lid- of pastry on it to be classified as a pie!

Yes, they are! [In reply to] Can't Post

And so tasty too.
Oh yes, I've read Blueberries for Sal many times, and read to my children as well. Knowing what I know about bears though, I really would not like to meet one-especially a Mother Bear!
