You know that Pie Fixes Everything.  We were recently on the coast in the vicinity of San Francisco and met up with some friends.  Light Words and husband, and HMS Defiant and I had a lovely visit and PIE at Fat Apple’s Restaurant and Bakery in El Cerrito (I think).  There we enjoyed chocolate cream . . .

Did you know that, “The olallieberry (pronounced oh-la-leh, sometimes spelled ollalieberry, olallaberry, olalliberry, ollalaberry or ollaliberry) is the marketing name for the ‘Olallie’ blackberry that was a selection from a cross between the ‘Black Logan’ (syn. ‘Mammoth’), developed by Judge James Logan in California, and the youngberry, developed by Byrnes M. Young in Louisiana. According to Logan, ‘Black Logan’ was from a cross between the eastern blackberry ‘Crandall’ and the western dewberry ‘Aughinbaugh’. ‘Youngberry’ was from a cross of ‘Phenomenal’ x ‘Austin Mayes’. ‘Phenomenal’ in turn is a cross of the ‘Aughinbaugh’ western dewberry and ‘Cuthbert’ red raspberry and so has a very similar background to Logan’s ‘Loganberry’ and shares a parent with his ‘Black Logan’.” (Wikipedia)

I didn’t either.  Anyway, the pie was delicious!

As you can see from the shelves, it was getting near the end of the day. Yet it was very much worth the trip.
