Wild Blueberry Tart

See the RecipeHelen Rosner

A lady from one of North Haven, Maine's long-established summer families gave this recipe to Nancy Harmon Jenkins, along with a story of its origin with a Swedish au pair called Lotta who fell in love either with the father or with the eldest son of the family with whom she was staying. Lotta was promptly shipped back to Sweden, leaving behind this elegant open-topped pie as a sweet memory. Tiny, sweet wild Maine blueberries are also available from Canada and possibly from Michigan; at your grocery store, you can find Wyman's frozen berries.
