If you can get your hands on some fresh strawberries, there is no need to buy canned pie filling. Here’s how to make yours from scratch. It also works well as a filling for cakes, of course!
- 4 cups strawberries
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- 1/4 cup cold water
How to Make It:
Start by washing and slicing the strawberries in half. Put them in a saucepan and add the sugar. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Turn down the temperature to medium low and let the mixture boil until the strawberries are well softened.
In a small bowl, mix together the cornstarch and water until it is smooth.
Add to the strawberry mixture and boil for about one more minute. Let it cool before using.
