My husband loves pie as much as Paul Wheaton does. His entire family does. Thanksgiving dinners have generally have 1 pie per 2 people and all the flavors of pie are different. I would love to bring a brand new pie flavor to the next large family gathering. It is one of the best ways to win favor with my in laws.

My new homestead has quite a few Autumn Olive bushes covered in fruit that will be ripe soon. I am looking for pie recipes to use these berries. I also plan on canning the pie filling and saving it for the holidays and I just need to find out how to process the berries before adding them to the canning recipe.

Howdy Kate, I don't have a reci-pie.
I had to look that one up, at first I thought you were talking about russian olive, then buffalo berry, this article explains why, (and has some ideas for cooking).

I don't have an autumn olive pie recipe, but I have found them to be really good, mixed in with whole grains, like rice, barley, oats, couscous, etc. Their tart flavor plays well off the rather dull starchiness and probably decreases the glucose spike, as tart flavors generally delay that spike. They also provide a juicy texture that plays well off the grains. Every male you love should eat them, as they are the highest source of lycopene, an antioxidant which fights prostate and other cancers. They have 17 times the amount by weight that tomatoes do. Pink fruit usually does: watermelon, pink grapefruit, pomegranate.
