"Fabulous pie! I have made 5 already this year, using fresh berries. I am wondering if frozen berries could be substituted?"
"I just made 2 pies using this recipe. Haven't tasted yet but the filling I tried out of the pan is yummy! I had to add a T or 2 of water when I started heating the sugar/tapioca/salt berry mixture. Can't wait to try finished pies!"
