Ingredients

  • 2 cups cultivated blueberries
  • 2 cups cultivated wild blueberries
  • 3/4 cups sliced peeled peaches
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons tapioca starch
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon finely grated lemon rind
  • 1 pinch cinnamon
  • 1 pinch ground allspice
  • 1 pinch salt
Pastry:
  • 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup cold unsalted butter cubed
  • 2 tablespoons lard
  • 3 tablespoons buttermilk
  • 3 tablespoons sour cream

Method

Pastry: In large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar and salt. Using pastry blender, cut in butter and lard until in fine crumbs with a few larger pieces. Stir in buttermilk and up to 1/4 cup (50 mL) ice water, 1 tbsp (15 mL) at a time, to form ragged dough. Press into ball; divide in half and press into discs. Wrap in plastic wrap; refrigerate for 30 minutes. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)

Meanwhile, in large bowl, combine blueberries, peaches and lemon juice. Stir together sugar, tapioca starch, lemon rind, cinnamon, allspice and salt ; add to blueberry mixture and toss to coat.

On lightly floured surface, roll out each pastry disc into 9-inch (23 cm) circle. Place on parchment paper–lined baking sheet. Divide blueberry mixture between pastry circles, leaving 1-1/2-inch (4 cm) border. Fold pastry border over filling to form about 6-inch (15 cm) circle, letting pastry fall naturally into folds around edge and leaving centre uncovered.

Brush pastry with buttermilk; sprinkle with sugar. Bake in bottom third of 375°F (190°C) oven until filling is bubbling and thickened and crust is golden, about 35 minutes. Let cool on rack. (Make-ahead: Set aside for up to 24 hours; reheat in 350°F/180°C oven for 5 to 7 minutes.)
