Hello This summer I am forcing myself to become an expert pie maker.

I plan to go to Paul's lab/farm/place next summer (2016) to do whatever people do there. I'll dig out a little hobbit hole if I have to.

My current problem however is not knowing what Paul's favourite types of pie are. I've almost got a recipe down-packed for a whole-mill apple pie.

So Paul.... tell me about your preference for pie?

The best pie is huckleberry pie. But that requires access to huckleberries, which can be a little tricky.

Next, I do enjoy a good banana cream pie.

A few more, in order:

rhubarb pie
strawberry rhubarb pie
very firm blueberry pie
cherry pie
pecan pie
cherry cheesecake (with enough cherries on top, it qualifies as pie)
peach pie

I have not heard of huckleberries growing in australia and pecan maybe a little out of my price range. but the rest I should be able to do.
I've been developing a nice hearty whole-mill short crust. I'm going to be playing around with different fats/lards/butters next
How do you like your crust?


also you've previously mentioned I could come up and help out. is there a process to that? some kind of sorting hat?
Just showing up seems like it'd be an inconvenient for you guys :/

pie crust: I like my pie crust to be delicious.

process to come out: pay the gapper fee. Then we take the time to visit and make arrangments and give you a tour and pick you up at the airport and stuff like that.
