Strawberry Pie Filling or Topping Recipe
By April 1, 2016Published:
- Yield: 1 9-inch pie
- 1 cup mashed strawberries
- 3/4 cup water
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 3 tablespoons cornstarch
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 4 cups halved strawberries leave whole if berries are small
- Place the mashed strawberries and water in a saucepan and put over medium-high heat. Bring to boil and simmer for 3 minutes. Pressing through a fine-meshed sieve, strain the juice and discard the remaining pulp. Add enough water to make 1 cup of juice.
- Add the juice, sugar, cornstarch, lemon juice, and salt to the saucepan and return to medium-high heat. Stir constantly and bring to a boil. Continue to stir until thick, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and allow to cool for 15 minutes. Stir in the remaining strawberries and use as desired.
