Ingredients[edit | edit source]

  • 3 cups cherries fresh frozen
  • 1 cup bakers sugar
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1 cup water
  • 4 Tbs. cornstarch w-13

Directions[edit | edit source]

3 cups cherries

Thaw cherries overnight at room temperature.

2 cups juice
1 cup water
(add more or less water to yield 3 cups)

Drain cherries through a colander. This should yield 2 cups juice. Add 1 cup of water making a total of 3 cups juice. Reserve 1 cup juice for cornstarch mix.

1 cup juice cooled
4 Tbs w-13 cornstarch

Dissolve cornstarch in cooled liquid, stir with whip.

2 cups juice
2/3 cup bakers sugar
1/8 tsp salt

Bring juice, sugar and salt to a boil. At boiling point add cornstarch mix (step 3) and cook until clear, about 5 minutes. If cooked too long syrup gets gummy.

1/3 cup bakers sugar

Take step 4 off fire and stir in sugar. Blend thoroughly.

Completed cooked juice

Pour completed cooked juice over drained cherries (step 1) and blend with spoon. Cool. IMPORTANT: Stir completed mix while cooling to prevent scum from forming on top.

Pour in 8" pie crust shell. Top completed pie with lattice crust. Bake at 425 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes.

Pitted sour fresh frozen pie cherries should be used. Taste cherries for sweetness more sugar may be needed. If the cherries are frozen with sugar a little less may be needed.
