    You don't need any strawberries in the pie, just put in what you like. Don't cut the berries if possible. Look at the top picture, thats is only one layer of berries. Big berries work, small berries work, but you just want to fill the pie shell.

    The purpose of the jell is not only to hold it together but to cover them all so they don't start weeping. Generally they won't last long enough to have that problem.

    I really can't understand. The jello is enough to Thicken it when cool, AND so is the cornstarch when cooked. Your jell should be thick before you pour it over the pie, then thicken even more as it cools. Not completely set up, but it should be thick. It should have the consistency of a cream pie. You didn't substitute flour for cornstarch did you? It has to be boiled to thicken, Cornstarch will thicken just before boiling, but boiling does not hurt it.

    Sorry it didn't work for you. Although I can't understand why.

    Thats a good idea and I have some fresh berries in the reefer and a new qt of faux 1800. I do have a jug of last years strawberry juice left in the kitchen though.....LOL. I am sitting here with a cold Shiner Bock while the second pot of beets boil.

    Not making a strawberry pie this week, gonna try a honey key lime.

    Yep-festival this weekend. These were from one of the farmers, all good berries. So sweet he said don't let them sit for more than 2 days or they will go bad, so we made a bunch of strawberry sauce with 'em.

    I know mom never used a recipe to bake fish, sad but true. I am thinking so I can't ruin the whole thing I'll take the filet off one side and bake the other attached. Baby Sis has mentioned a couple a times so far how much she likes Couvillon. And the freezer is sorta bare of seafood after lent now so I can't make a bouillabaisse which is what I am hungry for. I did get 10 lbs of peeled crawfish with the red snapper, so I could grill the filet and do a crawfish mornay sauce on top.... who knows whatever better start soon...LOL
