Alright, so I mentioned last week I was going to be posting some fun recipes for all the delicious foods that will be coming out of your gardens – well, here we go! So I love love love fresh strawberries. The only thing better is fresh strawberries in a pie. Mmmmmmmmmmm. So I found this recipe (this one is for pie crust), and I have to pass it on to you!!!
Now, this recipe is called “Strawberry Pie” (original, right? Hah!), and oh my goodness . . . sooooooooo good.
You need 1 quart fresh strawberries, the pie crust, 1 cup of white sugar, 3 TBSP cornstarch, 3/4 cup water, and then heavy whipping cream to top.
Arrange half the strawberries in the baked pie crust, and mash the rest. Combine them with the sugar, in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil, stirring frequently. In a small bowl on the side, mix cornstarch and water. Gradually stir this mixture into your boiling strawberries. Reduce heat and simmer, about 10 minutes, until it thickens (stirring constantly). Pour over the berries in the pie crust, and chill for several hours. 🙂 Yummy!!! Then top it with your whipped cream if you like.
Now, if you’re like me, you love a good strawberry pie. But even better than a good strawberry pie is a good strawberry rhubarb pie. Holy cow. So good. So here is an amazing recipe for Strawberry Rhubarb pie.
So there ya go! Yummy recipes for your strawberries! 🙂 And please, send us recipes you’ve found for your produce! We’d love it!
