Honey Sweetened Gooseberry Pie
 
Ingredients
  • 1 recipe pie crust
  • 2 cups gooseberries (or berries of choice!)
  • 2 cups rhubarb, cut into ½″ pieces (or additional gooseberries)
  • 1¼ cup honey (we used the honey from our very own bees!)
  • ¼ cup organic, all purpose flour
  • Beans from one vanilla pod or 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Instructions
  1. Make your pie crust (check out my pie crust recipe!)
  2. In a medium-sized saucepan, combine the gooseberries, rhubarb, and one tablespoon of water. Bring the mixture to a low simmer and allow it to continue to simmer until the gooseberries *pop* and it all sort of dissolves into a beautiful goo.
  3. Once the rhubarb and gooseberries have gooified (yes, that’s a word…ahem) add in the honey, flour, and vanilla beans. Stir, stir, stir to combine, making sure that there are no lumps of flour.
  4. Carefully pour the pie filling into the pre-baked pie shell. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 20-30 minutes, until the pie filling is set. Because this pie is sweetened with honey, it tends to have a slightly gooier texture than it’s sugar-sweetened relative. That’s okay. Who doesn’t love gooey pie?
