Cranberry Apple Pie

When I was recently given a photography assignment to photograph layers, I thought about the many places that layers appear in our lives.  There are layers in the atmosphere and in the soil.  Our skin has layers, and we dress in layers.  There are often layers of meaning in conversations, novels, and art.  In the food world, there are layers of onions, layers of fat, and layers in a lasagna.  But my favorite layers are the layers of Mutsu apples in a homemade cranberry apple pie

Blueberry Pie

Although there are few places I’d rather be than my kitchen, I’m not what you’d call a happy baker.  I hate all that measuring and weighing and exacting over every little ingredient.  I much prefer to throw whatever I find in the fridge into a cast iron skillet, add a few herbs and spices, and enjoy the unpredictable results.  However, when local blueberry season rolls around, I find myself slaving over blueberry pie three or four times a summer.  On rare occasions, there will be a piece left for a lucky friend or neighbor, but — for the rest of you  I offer this photo.  Look quickly because I’m about to devour the last slice.
