Notes

You can use fresh or frozen blueberries for this recipe depending on what you have on hand but if you are looking for a tasty pie filling I really recommend using frozen blueberries. This is because the frozen blueberries will break down more as they cook and create a juicer pie filling (like the more traditional pie filling you'd expect to get).
