This sweet elderberry pie is a perfect way to use elderberries when in season. There's little more to this than elderberries, sugar and pastry - deliciously simple. Use your favourite pastry recipe, or simply buy shop-bought pastry from the supermarket.
It is a good idea to put a tray or foil under the pie as it bakes since it might bubble over.
This was deeelicious...and I don't even like elderberry pie! I added about 1T extra of cornstarch and made a lattice crust. This pie had a perfect consistency, and my family just couldn't stay out of it. Will make again! - 21 Aug 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Great pie! I love elderberries and found that the easiest way to clean/ de-stem the berries is to freeze them first. Then they practically fall off the stems. Super easy! - 15 Aug 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This was the first time I thickened the berries before baking. What a difference. This is what elderberry pie should look like AND taste like!!! - 29 Aug 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
