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.
