More strawberries! Ok, maybe we are getting a little tired of strawberries, but have a piece of pie! Many fresh strawberry pie recipes call for drops of red food coloring…this is au naturel. No coloring needed, beautiful right from nature, and tastes good too.
1 deep-dish pie crust, baked
6-7 cups cut up fresh strawberries (halves, quarters, I do equal size small chunks)
1 cup water
3/4 cup sugar
3½ Tbl cornstarch
Puree 2 cups of the strawberries. In saucepan, mix together strawberry puree, water, sugar and cornstarch. Bring to boil, cook until thickened. Cool until slightly warm, fold in remaining 4-5 cups of strawberries. Pour into baked pie crust and refrigerate. Serve with whipped cream.
