Stove top berry pie success and picture!

Made another one of these great blueberry pies.... the secret is adding lots of fresh berries after cooking and thickening half of the berries.... here's a link to the recipe and story:

      just a note about a few changes I made - you can decide if they make sense for you.... I cut back the brown sugar and substituted some vanilla sugar that I have (sugar with vanilla beans in jar) - the first time I made it - I thought that the brown sugar was a bit too present - didn't want to upstage the berries. I also put in the zest of one lemon while I was juicing a lemon for the recipe. Both times I've gone with the flour as thickener but I'm thinking next time I might try tapioca starch or even corn starch - the flour tastes a bit thick/floury but it does a good job of not thinning out over time.
