  • 2 pints (4 cups) blueberries
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped lemon zest

Method: 

Set 1 cup of blueberries aside. Place remaining blueberries in a medium bowl. Add lemon juice and zest and toss to coat. Mix sugar with the cornstarch, cinnamon and nutmeg. Add to blueberries and mix well.

Transfer blueberry mixture to a medium saucepan over medium high heat. Cook, stirring often, until the mixture begins to boil and the blueberries have begun to release their juices, 3 to 5 minutes. Continue to boil until the juice is thick, shiny and clear, 4 to 6 minutes longer. Remove from the heat and cool for about 5 minutes. Stir in the reserved blueberries. Pour mixture into the pie shell. Garnish with chopped pistachios. Cool pie to room temperature or refrigerate until chilled before serving.
