Strawberry Pie for tea

Strawberry Pie

I love Strawberry Pie…..actually- I adore Strawberry Pie! I have such fond memories of this pie growing up. My parents had a wonderful strawberry patch where we harvested basket upon basket of strawberries. For a few weeks we would make strawberry jam, strawberry shortcake and strawberry pie- and just eating them fresh off the stem. My mom was quite a baker and she always said that she liked this strawberry pie recipe because it let the the natural taste of fresh strawberries shine through.

Love you Nanna!

We just received a flat of strawberries from our wonderful fruit purveyor- Sid Wainer and Sons.

The strawberries smelled wonderful and spoke- farm fresh! Our daughter April was just talking about how smells reminded her of past happy memories. These strawberries spoke to me and my mind wandered back to when I was a child picking strawberries from our garden. I quickly decided it was perfect timing to make strawberry pie for our guests.

The recipe shown below is my mom’s original recipe. Check out a previous blog for her pie shell recipe

Strawberry Pie
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 1 pie
We are strawberry and raspberry devotees at the Captain Freeman Inn! We make strawberry jam, strawberry puree, strawberry limoncello sorbet and strawberry pie-all made from fresh strawberries. This recipe takes 1 quart of fresh strawberries and is to die for.
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water or strawberry juice
  • 5 teaspoons corn starch
  • 1½ oz. strawberry jello
  • 1 quart fresh strawberries
  • 1 pie shell, prebaked
  1. In medium sauce pan, add one cup of sugar with one cup of water or juice and mix in the cornstarch. Bring to a boil until sauce thickens. Mix in strawberry jello. Take off heat and mix in berries. Immediately place in cooled pie shell that has been prebaked. Refrigerate until ready to eat.
  2. We love to serve it with fresh whipped whip cream.

All one can say is YUM!
