Strawberry Pie

Great Grandma's version
Makes 2 pies.

  • 1 C sugar
  • 3 T cornstarch
  • 3 T light corn syrup or honey 
  • 1 C water
  • Smidge of salt
  • 1 package strawberry Jello
  • 3 pints strawberries

  • Mix first four ingredients (all but jello and berries) 
  • together in small sauce pan and bring to boil.  
  • Stirring, boil about one minute.  
  • Off heat add jello and mix well.  
  • Let cool to close to room temperature.  
  • Add to washed and trimmed berries.
  • (you can slice them or even leave them whole)  
  • Dump on into pie shells and put in the fridge.  
  • They set in about an hour... 
  • or pop one in the freezer and it sets in about 15-20 minutes.

  • She made her own pie shells... 
  • but I am not at that place in my cooking life where I feel confident enough to make something like that.  
  • Her recipe for pie crust includes the line 
  • "add flour until the dough feels right"  - ???  

  • Also, a disclaimer... 
  • She gave me this recipe over the phone 
  • and every measurement had the word "about" in front of it...

  • and smidge is her word... and I like it.

Linking recipe with Kristance.
