Blackberry Custard Pie

I was always wary of rhubarb custard pie when I was a kid.  I was never quite sure if I liked it.  I would think I did and then the next bite I did not....but it was so really.  And on and on it went.  You wanna know what I eventually started doing?  Picking out all of the rhubarb and eating it and then having just the glorious custard and crust left behind. :) an adult, this seems rather an unacceptable behavior - but I do not wish to live a life without custard.  So - switch up the fruit and life is GRAND!

You can make this pie with Rhubarb, Blackberries, Raspberries, even Apricots.  If you do make it with Rhubarb I would suggest upping the sugar a bit (but that's your call).

Will you pick the fruit out or eat it all at once? :)
