Foodie With Family: High Pie with berries

By Rebecca Lindamood, Special to the Record-Eagle

---- — I recently discovered that my youngest, age 5, has said something incorrectly for his entire life. While congratulating his older brothers on a fort they had built, he thrust his little hand in the air and yelled, "High Pie, guys!" As his mother, I was obliged to tell him the "correct" version of the saying, but I also mentioned that I liked his version better. Honestly, it's brilliant. What's better than pie? I can't think of a more suitable exclamation of excitement. Baking and serving foods in Mason jars has been all the rage lately and for pretty good reason. Fruit pies to pot pies to custards to cakes and everything else imaginable has been stuffed into the portable, reusable, heat/freezer/dishwasher safe canning jar. It's easy to store these convenient servings for later use.
