I make this quite a bit and last night added fresh cranberries. This was divinity on a plate!
One thing I never mind paying for is pastry, any sort – because mine is just never good and food should be enjoyed, not suffered lol
31/2 – 4 cups mixed berries (fresh or frozen)
1/2 cup sugar
2 good tablespoons cornflour (corn starch)
1 tsp lemon rind, or juice
1 quantity sweet shortcrust pastry
Preheat oven to 200c. Toss berries with other ingredients in bowl, mix well to combine. Turn into pie dish, cover with pastry and prick with a fork. Bake around 15 – 20 minutes till golden.
We use whatever berries are in the garden and quantities are not important. The addition of strawberries is always very nice and this one last night had raspberries, strawberries and cranberries. My husband commented it was absolutely the best ever. Even dried cranberries added to whatever else I expect would be very similar.
