“I got this recipe years ago from my grandmother who got it from a Florida Farm Bulletin. It came in handy for all the blueberries my granddaddy grew lovingly for us. I love it because it utilizes both cooked and raw blueberries. My dad likes to tell people that I got a marriage proposal for this pie at my first job out of college! (No, I didn't accept!! :-) ) Cooking time includes time to chill.”
