I must apologize up front for the editing on this video. I am not very experienced at this, and the super easy app I had on my phone “updated” and became way too complicate for me to use. I found another app, but it wasn’t much better – so hopefully I will find one I can understand.

However! I do understand canning! This is a video for making strawberry pie filling. I learned to do this last year, and have since made apple pie filling as well as peach. It is a little labor intensive, but well worth the effort! If you have questions, please feel free to e-mail me.

This is the recipe:

For 1 quart: 3 1/2 cups fresh or thawed strawberries, 3/4 cup plus 2 tbsp granulated sugar, 1/4 cup plus 1 tbsp Clear Jel (cook type), 1 cup cold water, 3 1/2 tsp bottled lemon juice.

For 7 quarts: 6 quarts (24 cups) strawberries, 6 cups sugar, 2 1/4 cups Clear Jel, 7 cups cold water, 1/2 cup bottled lemon juice.

4-8 drops of red food coloring – optional

Wash and cap strawberries and drain fruit. Combine sugar and Clear Jel in a large pot, mix well. Add water and mix well. (Add red food coloring, if desired). Cook on med high until mixture thickens and begins to bubble. Stir to a smooth consistency. Add lemon juice and boil 1 minute, stirring constantly. Fold in strawberries immediately and then fill quart jars, one at a time, leaving 1 1/2″ headspace. Do your best to get all the air bubbles out of the jars. This will be difficult due to the thickness of the mixture. It’s best to add a little at a time, and remove the air bubbles. Wipe rims, add lids and rings and process 30 minutes in a full rolling boil water bath.

I recorded a video in my kitchen on how to make home made pastry and mini (individual) chicken pot pies. I haven’t uploaded it to youtube yet, but I did put it on facebook. Here is the link.
