My husband loves strawberries and I could never beat his grandmothers strawberry cake. He's not a fruit eater either so I create this recipe experimenting making fresh fruit pies and I tweaked this recipe to share with all fresh pie lovers. The thing is you can be the creative one by combining complimentary flavors with your fruit, whether it be fresh fruit or even frozen. He'll eat more fruit now as a pie.
Wash and trim fruit or thaw frozen fruit of your choice. The amount of fruit you will need is enough for one pie and depending on the size of fruit that's the amount of fruit you will use 2 to 4 cups of fruit. Fruit must be WASHED,TRIMMED,SLICED, DRIED, and SET ASIDE, ready to be place in pie. It's very important to dry and drain your fruit. This helps you to keep your pie from getting soggy from excess juice and water.
Combine sugar or Splendorous, corn starch, salt & water into 2 quart pot and heat medium to boil until thick and stirring frequently so there are no lumps.DO NOT BURN! Reduce heat and simmer about 10. Then add JELLO and food color stirring till JELLO is dissolved and color is even.
Pour small amount of hot liquid filling to coat and cover the bottom of pie(this helps your pie from getting soggy too)and begin to arrange your first layer of fruit on top of filling then pour more filling again this time to coat and cover your fruit completely, repeat this process until you have filled your pie finishing with filling mixture to completely cover and coat your pie.
Let the filled pie set and chill for at least an hour or more. Serve with your favorite whipped topping!
GOD bless you and your family where love is served.
