elderberry pie is a really nice and its easy to get hold of the ingredients
Step 1: Picking
well basically you need a near by elderberry bush (which we did) and pick only the ripe ones which look quite large and black.I also pocked a couple of blackberries as well.
Step 2: Preperation
wash the berries off in a colander or bowl.
-1and a quarter cups of sugar
-6 table spoons of flour
-2table spoons of lemon juice
-2 dibs of butter
put the flour,sugar,lemon and berries into a saucepan and stir occasionally but leave till boils.
Step 4: Pastry
whilst thats brewing, roll out the pastry into a round shape big enough to fit your pie tin, and put in it.also creat the top of it about the same size
once the berries have boiled take them off the heat and leave to cool for 15 mins then put in the pie dish.close it over with the pie top and add some dobs of butter.
put iin the oven for 10mins at 220 degrees then turn it down to 180 degrees for 30 mins.leave to stand for 10 mins.
