When I say "fresh", I mean fresh. These strawberries were still on the bush this morning. Thanks to some help from my 3 year old, I have 2 ice cream pails full of strawberries to use. Here is just one way they're being put to use.

Ingredients

1
frozen deep dish pie crust
1 c
sugar
1 c
water
2 Tbsp
corn starch
2 Tbsp
light corn syrup
1 box
(3 oz) strawberry jello
3 - 3 1/2 c
strawberries, fresh

Step-By-Step

1Bake and cool pie crust according to package directions.
2Remove stems from strawberries and wash. If they're small, leave whole, or you can cut them in half, or slice them; whatever is your preference.
3Mix together sugar, water, corn starch, and light corn syrup in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat.
4Continue boiling, whisking mixture, until it turns somewhat clear.
5Remove from heat and whisk in jello, 2 minutes. Allow mixture to cool.
6Once cool, gently mix in strawberries.
7Pour into pie crust and refrigerate overnight, or until set. Top each piece with Cool Whip when serving, if desired.
