I’m sure there is an obscure, ancient law somewhere that says you can’t go berry picking without making pie. so here is ours!

Berry and apple pie using Jamie Oliver’s crust:

  • 3.5 c plain flour
  • 1 c icing sugar
  • Zest of one lemon
  • 2 large eggs
  • Splash of milk

Pie and Tea



summer berry jam

On Saturday, the boys and I did some foraging in the trails and came home with a bucket and a half of raspberries. With a large bowl full set aside for pie (yay!), Oscar and I set about smashing the berries to make Oscar’s North Shore Jam. Scrummy spread on crusty bread.

Berry madness!

It's me! In a jam pot!

Berry delicious!
