The filling was a combo of fresh mixed berries sweetened naturally with orange juice and honey/maple syrup. Since fresh berries don’t always get hot enough to burst in the oven, sometimes the filling doesn’t get saucy enough for my taste. For this reason the author made a thick berry filling by cooking part of the berries on the stove with some starch before mixing in the rest of the fresh whole berries. This ensures that the final filling is nice and thick, yet still has bites of whole berries.
