Elderberry Pie Recipe

Serve pieces of this elegant pie with whipped cream.

• 4 tablespoons flour 
• 1 cup elderberry juice
• 1 cup or less sugar
• 1/4 teaspoon salt
• 1 egg, separated
• 1 cup milk
• Unbaked pie shell 

1. In a bowl, combine flour, sugar and salt. Stir in enough milk to make a paste.

2. In a saucepan, bring elderberry juice to a boil. Stir paste into hot juice. Simmer, stirring often to prevent lumps. Remove from heat and stir in remaining milk to cool mixture. Stir in egg yolk. 

3. Beat egg white in a bowl until stiff; fold into juice mixture. Pour filling into an unbaked 9-inch pie shell and bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes.
