blueberry custard pie with candied ginger

Grandma's recipe. (the candied ginger garnish is my own modern twist)

Sorry I'm not posting the recipe. It's not that it's a family secret, it's just that the recipe contains some approximations that I'm still figuring out how to master... my first few attempts at making this pie were kind of a disaster (this one came out pretty damn good, if I do say so myself).

At first, I was confused as to why this pie was giving me so much trouble. I remembered helping make this pie many times as a child.
But then, I realized that I "helped" in the way that kids "help" in the kitchen... by standing around and watching Grandma do it (though I'm sure I did pick the berries from my grandparents' blueberry bushes).

If I fine-tune this pie enough that I can write a concise recipe,
I'll update this post at a later time.
...then again, maybe grandma-recipes should stay sacred.

Wow! I love this. It looks sooooo yummy. I might have to try it with the black raspberries we're getting in the next week.
