This is a simple, quick recipe. It is very versatile- it can be used with any kind of berry. It doesn't use any gelatin or anything that would detract from the real taste of the fresh berries. This was the one recipe we used growing up when we wanted a berry pie, because you can't get any closer to the taste of fresh berries in a pie. When made with blueberries, they pop in your mouth and are still full of juice. Plus, because it doesn't require baking, there's no need to turn the oven on and heat up the kitchen. And it's so easy!
