I am jumping a little ahead with the Summer-time foods, but I just can’t help it. I love fresh strawberries more then any other berry, and fresh strawberry pie is my favorite!
1 9 inch pie crust, baked
2 1/2 quarts fresh strawberries
1 cup white sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 cup boiling water
1/2 (3 ounce) package strawberry flavored gelatin
In a saucepan, mix together the sugar and corn starch; make sure to blend corn starch in completely. Add boiling water, and cook over medium heat until mixture thickens. Remove from heat. Add gelatin mix, and stir until smooth. Let mixture cool to room temperature.
Place strawberries in baked pie shells; position berries with points facing up. Pour cooled gel mixture over strawberries.
Refrigerate until set. Serve with whipped cream, if desired.
