Pie Fillings

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Pies, Canning

 Ingredients List

  • General: The following fruit fillings are excellent and safe products. Each
  • canned quart makes one 8-inch to 9-inch pie. The filling may be used as
  • toppings on dessert or pastries. "Clear Jel(tm)" is a chemically modified
  • corn starch that produces excellent sauce consistency even after fillings
  • are canned and baked. Other available starches break down when used in
  • these pie fillings, causing a runny sauce consistency. Clear Jel(tm) is
  • increasingly available among canning and freezing supplies in some stores.
  • If you cannot find it, ask your county Extension home economist about its
  • availability in your region.
  • Because the variety of fruit may alter the flavor of the fruit pie, it is
  • suggested that you first make a single quart, make a pie with it, and
  • serve. Then adjust the sugar and spices in the recipe to suit your personal
  • preferences. The amount of lemon juice should not be altered, as it aids in
  • controlling the safety and storage stability of the fillings.
  • When using frozen cherries and blueberries, select unsweetened fruit. If
  • sugar has been added, rinse it off while fruit is frozen. Thaw fruit, then
  • collect, measure, and use juice from fruit to partially replace the water
  • specified in the recipe. Use only 1/4 cup Clear Jel(tm) per quart, or
  • 1-3/4 cups for 7 quarts. Use fresh fruit in the apple and peach pie
  • fillings.
