Blueberry Pie, No Bake (P, TNT)
Source: Unknown
Yield: 1 pie (6 to 8 servings)

2 pints fresh blueberries, rinsed
2 tbsp. instant tapioca
2 tbsp. sugar, or to taste (you can use a sugar substitute since this isn't baked)
Lemon rind, cinnamon (optional and to taste)
Baked and cooled, or purchased pie shell (I use graham cracker crust)

Put one pint of rinsed blueberries in a heavy saucepan, crush a bit with a spoon, and sprinkle with the tapioca and sugar. Cook over low heat, stirring, for about ten minutes. Berries will break down and give up their juice, and tapioca will dissolve.

Set aside to cool down a little, taste the mixture and adjust for sweetness. Add lemon, cinnamon (or nothing) as you wish.

Add the second pint of rinsed berries, uncooked, to the mixture in the saucepan. Stir together and let cool a little more.

Pour the combined berry mixture into the pie shell and refrigerate for several hours so the tapioca can set.

Poster's Notes:
This is the easiest and so good. I sometimes top the pie with raspberries or sliced kiwis before it goes into the refrigerator. It's also great with whipped topping or vanilla ice cream.
