Frogalicious Fresh Strawberry Pie

Updated on July 26, 2014

So Easy A Frog Can Make It!

A Southern Favorite

I'm veering away from my usual political beat to share one of the most enticing fresh strawberry pie recipes I know by heart.. Fresh strawberries are about be to plentiful and drop in price as the harvest comes in. Fresh strawberries are key to this recipe - no frozen berries should hit the pie shell. It is easy to make and scrumptious.

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees and brown one deep dish pie shell or make your own for added freshness. Remove from oven and let it start cooling. You won't need to oven again for this delight.

Hull a one pound container of fresh berries which have been thoroughly washed then half or quarter the red little rascals. Don't worry you'll use them all.

In a sauce pan place and bring to a boil:

1 cup of water and 3/4 cup of sugar

Then add 3 table spoons of dissolved corn starch to begin the thickening process

Add 2 tablespoons of Karo syrup, the contents of a 3 oz packet of strawberry jello and just a dash of salt.

Stir continuously on a slow boil until the glaze is thick. Remove from heat. Make your own glaze this way folks, no packaged shortcuts. Again freshness is required.

Place your fresh berries into the browned, deep dish pie shell and cover with the homemade glaze. Allow to cool for a short time before popping that puppy into the frig. Refrigerate until glaze is solidified. I use Cool Whip to top a piece after I am ready to chow down. Simple huh?

Bon Appetite.

      This is one of those recipes that I could substitute half the sugar with stevia, or use the Sun Crystals in. Thanks for sharing!

      I tried strawberry pie at a church dinner that was out of this world, and was trying to figure out what the ingredients were. Reading this, I think this is the recipe, or at least very similar. Can't wait to try, thank you!

      Frog sounds great, I'm gonna do it, but with a graham cracker crust! I'll be letting you know how it goes as the topper to smoked Elk shoulder and beans, corn, taters and Artisan style bread from a recipe I got, here at the pages from Delores Monet and her hub https://hubpages.com/food/SlowRiseNoKneadBreadDeli...

      After making sourdough and pretty much a days close watching and kneading this recipe is an overnight dream to make! Now top all that with your pie and I probably will sleep well after a cigarette, ha ha, 50
