Blueberry pie is blueberry pie, right? Not much you can do to change it. Well, it ain't necessarily so. We discovered that simmering the blueberries in wine before using them enhances their flavor; they don't taste like wine, just more like themselves.
We always use frozen blueberries for pie, considering the price and intensely seasonal availability of fresh. We find simmering the frozen berries in wine before using them allows them to thaw and release some of their liquid; the liquid then evaporates as the berries gently simmer. This prevents the finished pie from being watery, in addition to giving it great flavor.
