Fruit Pie Filling

I had been making pie like crazy recently like you wouldn’t believe. My freezer was taken over by fruits pies, from hand pies to small batch round pie or braided fruits pie puff pastry, I have them all in my freezer. I blame it all on the beautiful and attractive fresh fruits in the market. What can I do, they are simply irresistible, I just cannot ignore them. Besides, Summer is very short in Vancouver and that goes without saying that fresh Summer fruits goes away as fast as Summer finishes. One day they were just there, the following day they were gone. Ok maybe not a day, but really quick. When they started to disappear in the market, I started to panic. So what I did was I bought enough to make them into fruit sauces, which in turn I can make into pie filling or even jam if I want to. If my freezer is full of unbaked pie, my refrigerator is full homemade pie filling from Peach, Apple, Strawberry, Blueberry, Cherry and Pineapple. I have to say I did the right thing because now that it is already Fall, I am still enjoying the fresh fruits of Summer.

The Best Pie Filling is a Combination of Homemade Filling and Fresh Fruit

All these fruit filling were done almost with the same process of boiling the fruit in sugar. This is a combination of fresh fruit, sugar and a little bit of cornstarch to thicken it. And you know what I found out? A combination of cooked fruit and fresh fruit is the best pie filling. Here’s why. The process of cooking the fruit until the sauce starts to thickens reduces the excess water content that could make the pie soggy, and soggy pie is the last thing that you want. Also, if your fruit is not too sweet, cooking it before using it as pie filling will assure you that you will not end up serving sour pie which is not fun at all. I’ve done it once and it was really embarrassing. Now the fresh fruits, the addition of fresh fruits on the other-hand adds a nice texture to the pie which makes it a balance between texture and taste, plus it is always nice to give a fresh taste and look to the pie. Now if you do not have fresh fruit to mix, then by all means use homemade pie filling instead. Trust me, it’s 100% better than using all fresh fruits  or canned pie filling. So here I am giving you 5 pie filling options that you can choose from, choose whichever you like and don’t forget to let me know which one you choose.
