Peach Berry Pie
3 peaches, pitted and sliced
1/2 pint blueberries
1/2 lb strawberries
1/4 c sugar
1 T ea: lime juice, grenadine
1/4 c cornstarch
1 pie crust (I just buy the dough, but you can make it)
{2 egg whites, optional–made a fast meringue since I’d only one crust left and extra whites}

Sliced strawberries and let sit with sugar, lime juice and grenadine to release its juices, drained off the berries. Mixed cornstarch into strawberry juice and heated until thickened. Roll out crust and lay in pie pan. Lay sliced peaches in bottom of pie, added blueberries. Poured glaze over fruit and baked 30 min in 400 preheated oven. Add meringue and baked another 10-15 min.

The glaze multiplied under the peach juices and overfloweth... but I sort of recovered it.

NB: this got kinda runny so next time I’d either flour the peaches. Or I was thinking I’d split up the sugar and acid…putting half of each on the peaches and strawberries and cook the juices from both (maybe even reducing them some first) with more cornstarch so there wouldn’t be run off. But I did salvage free-reign juices and spoon it over the meringue decoratively so as not to get called out on it and it passed (though perhaps by mercy more so than merit).

I was considering submitting this for Joelen’s pie challenge, but decided not to since it was sort of a flop at the moment but… I’m looking forward to the wrap up for some fun ideas (and I’m making a savory pie next week, testing a potential candiate for the book club GTG).
