Harvest Pie can be anything you want it to be. In this pie, you can combine whatever is in season: apples, blackberries, pears, strawberries. Be prepared to be surprised. If it turns out a disaster (but it won’t), simply serve it with ice cream. This is one recipe variation, keep in mind that you can throw in this pie whatever you want.
