Pie Club - December 2022
For December, I saved some red tart cherries, my favorite, especially for this pie! With those cherries, bright blueberries, seasonal cranberries and the alluring addition of Chinese Five Spice, the Spiced Cherry Berry Crumble is a pie that can’t be ignored. The five flavors of the spices (sweet, bitter, sour, salty, and umami (savoriness)) refers to the five traditional Chinese elements and include Cinnamon, Anise Seed, Cloves, Ginger, and Fennel Seed. With a healthy topping of Oat crumble, the pie is fragrant, sweet, and a completely unique pie. We made a few of these only once before over the summer, and one customer ordered them all, three days in a row! Enjoy!
