    Default Looking forward to strawberry pie!

    I'm longing for Spring and Florida strawberries. Here's one I've
    saved for that time:


    * Exported from MasterCook *

    Strawberry Pie
    4 boxes fresh strawberries (approx. 1
    pound per box)
    1/2 cup water
    1 1/4 cups sugar
    juice of 1/2 lemon
    pinch of salt
    5 tablespoons cornstarch
    1 12" baked pie shell
    ·few drops of red food coloring if desired
    Topping:
    1/2 pint whipping cream (or more)
    1/4 teaspoon vanilla
    1 1/2 tablespoons powdered sugar

    · Wash and stem berries, reserving 1 box for glaze.
    Glaze:
    · Mash the reserved berries with a fork; add water, lemon juice and
    salt.
    · Combine sugar and cornstarch; add to the berries slowly, mixing
    well.
    · Cook mixture in top of double boiler over hot water until thick and
    clear. Cool

    · Arrange remaining berries in baked pie shell, pour glaze over.
    · Chill 2 to 3 hours.
    To serve, whip cream with vanilla and powdered sugar and top pie.

    Your recipe sounds delicious, Dora, but Florida strawberries might be in
    short supply this year along with most other Florida fruit due to the
    very cold weather they have experienced this winter.

    Yes, they've had a rough time of it. California strawberries are the
    next bet but (because of shipping distances) the quality isn't as good
    here on the east coast.

    I've had a couple of decent batches of Florida strawberries from
    Costco the past 2 weeks.

    Do you mix the whip cream, vanilla and powdered sugar as one and then
    top? Seriously asking.

    Unless the strawberries down there are vastly different from ours there
    should not be a problem. Strawberries are quite capable of surviving
    freezing temperatures. There are a lot of strawberries grown in my neck
    of the woods, including close to 10 acres in the farm behind me and 30
    acres of berries around the corner. We sometimes got 2 months or more
    with the temperature rarely rising above freezing and strawberries thrive.

    Realizing that they may use different varieties and that there is a
    winter strawberry season there, I did a little surfing and found
    articles that indicated that the strawberry crop was not hit too hard.

    Mix the sugar and vanilla with the cream and *then* whip. What I do
    is partially whip the cream, and then add them but I see no reason why
    they can't be added at the beginning.

    I love cooking with wine.
    Sometimes I even put it in the food.

    I add the sugar as I go along but I doubt it's too important.
    Different from whipping egg whites for a meringue.

    I rather like leaving out the sugar often put into cream to make it
    sweet when whipped. Vanilla yes, and other flavorings, banana,
    hazelnut, brandy "flavoring" or just about any other 'flavoring' one wants.

    However i missed the original recipe referred to

    Im tempted to trot out my copy of Fraises Bernhardt, which are champagne
    macerated strawberries served with pineapple and vanilla ice cream.

    Part of the strawberries are macerated in a good sweet champagne and
    then freshly sliced strawberries are added to the crushed & macerated
    strawberries to make a strawberry sauce with to serve over vanilla
    ice-cream and shredded pineapple.

    That looks rather like what I do, without looking at my recipe. I
    don't think mine contains lemon juice though--just the sweetness
    of the filling/glaze contrasting with the whole berries. I don't
    put vanilla in the whipped cream--and go along with the minimal
    sweetening there. I will add that IMO, you need a good
    (standard--not crumb, etc.) pie crust, and it should not have any
    sweetener in it. Last time I made this pie, I used a different
    pie crust recipe, and the result was not an improvement.

    I know what you're saying. This recipe is very similar to one I have
    had before but I'm sure I'll twitch it around. Frankly, I'm not even
    sure I'd use the whipped cream mix - certainly not to top the whole
    pie but perhaps just to pipe around the edge. Why gild the lily? The
    glazed strawberries will look gorgeous by themselves.

    Mmmm. Now I am drooling. It's a LONG time until we have native
    strawberries up here in Massachusetts though.

    I couldn't stand it, all this take about pies, strawberry and lemon
    are my favorites. I just had to made a strawberry pie using the big
    juicy frozen strawberries from costco (had a bag in freezer), with
    fresh whipped cream it was wonderful. Lemon with fresh zest is next

    The frozen strawberries didn't turn to mush when they thawed?

    Easy enough to get lemons all year rounds. I need to go to Costco
    and will inspect the strawberries.

    Costco strawberries are wonderful. I'd use them fresh in that
    strawberry pie, though, rather than frozen, since they'd stay together
    better. Just my preference.

    I love fresh strawberry pie glacé, but I also like baked strawberry pie
    using fresh berries.

    It's a little early for the prime strawberry season, though.
