Cook Time

Prep time: 30 min
Cook time: 40 min
Ready in: 1 hour 10 min
Yields: 8 people (4.2 ounces of pie)


  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/4 sticks butter
  • 4-5 teaspoons cold water
  • 2 pounds (6 cups) fresh blueberries
  • 1/2 cup cane sugar, white sugar is extremely processed and unhealthy, so cane sugar is better
  • 1/2 teaspoon allspice

Preparing and Baking the Pie

  1. Fire the Oven: Build a big fire in the mud oven and burn wood in the oven for about an hour to build up a strong coal base. In the meantime, prepare the pie.
  2. Preparing the Pie Crust: In a bowl combine 1 1/2 cups of flower and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Mix and add in 1/4 stick of butter. Blend the butter into the flower. Then add the water one teaspoon at a time until the dough is able to hold together but not yet wet so it sticks to your hands. (You may not need all the water called for in the ingredients.)
  3. Preparing the Pie Filling: In a saucepan, melt 2 tablespoons of butter and then blend it in a bowl with the 1/2 cup of sugar and tablespoon of lemon juice. Mix in the all spice and fresh blueberries.
  4. Grease a 9 - inch pie pan using the left over butter and line out the pie crust in the pan. It sometimes helps to roll out the pie crust with a roller and then fit it to the pan. You will need to press the pie crust in with your fingers to mold it to the pan. After laying in the pie crust, pour in the fresh blueberry filling. If you plan to add a layer of pie crust over top, do so now.
  5. Place the pie in the oven and monitor the pie based on the heat level you have the oven at. You can adjust the temperature by adding and removing coals from the oven. You may not get the temperature right on your first pie, but with practice, you will become an expert.
