Blueberry pie

The two Ls are on cooking holiday again. Prince Edward Island, home of yummy wild blueberries...so what do we make first? Blueberry pie! This is a KEEPER!


Filling:
5 cups wild blueberries
1 cup sugar
3 Tb tapioca 
Zest of one lemon, be sure not too add white pulp

Crust:
2 cups flour
1/2 tap salt 
2/3 cup coconut oil
3-6 TBs ice cold water

Mix in large bowl all ingredients for filing. Set aside.
For crust add all dry ingredients. With pastry cutter or two forks cut in coconut oil till you have little pearls.  Add water till you have a pastry dough. Roll out on floured surface. (We used a frozen can since we had no roller.) 
Recipe makes two full crusts.  (We were fancy with lattice because we wanted to use the extra for little pies for immediate consumption.
