EASY GLAZED BERRY PIE
This is a modified version of my mother’s pie recipe. She makes the best pie anywhere!
I did a taste test with this recipe versus the jar glaze they sell near the strawberries. Talk about an artificial taste. I read the ingredients on the jar and it didn't sound too bad, but I wonder
what they mean when they say "other natural ingredients." This recipe is so easy and cheap and it only takes a few minutes.
1 qt. strawberries
1 pt. blueberries
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup cold water
1/4 cup cold water
1/2 lime (lemon will do) - juice of
3 T cornstarch
1 pie crust or
Wash, clean and drain the berries. Put 1 cup of the strawberries, cut up, about a third of the blueberries, the sugar and 3/4 cup water in the rice cooker pan. Turn on the
rice cooker to cook and stir frequently for about 5 minutes.
Mix cornstarch, 1/4 cup water and the lime juice. Add to the rice cooker and stir until liquid turns clear. If the mixture starts getting hard to stir, add a little more
Turn the rice cooker off and let the mixture cool.
Mix the berries into the glaze. Then:
- Spoon mixture into a pie shell
vanilla wafer or graham cracker crusts are good or
- Place 4 or 5 vanilla wafers in bowls and spoon mixture into bowls.
Serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
Options: Use peaches or any variety of berry. It's even good with frozen berries.
