Mixed Berry Pie (Made with Fresh Berries)

Ironically, one of the greatest and most frustrating things about fresh, seasonal fruit is that harvests vary from year to year based on growing conditions. As bakers, flexibility is key for working with what nature gives us. This recipe requires the baker to adjust the sugar to taste depending on the berry type and overall sweetness and acidity. This recipe is perfect for those who are comfortable modifying recipes to suite their tastes.
