STAIN GLASS FRUIT SALAD
— 3 quarts fresh whole strawberries
— 1-quart blueberries
— 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
— 1 whole pineapple, cut into 1/2 inch chunks
— 2 tablespoons cornstarch
— One cup sugar
— 1 teaspoon vanilla
— 1 1/2 cups water
If making homemade pie filling, use the instructions below.
In a large saucepan, add one cup of water, lemon juice and 1 cup of strawberries diced and sugar. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring often. Cook for about 2 minutes.
In a small bowl, add the cornstarch and a 1/2 cup of water. Stir together until mixed well, making a slurry.
Pour the slurry mixture slowly into the sauce mixture while the mixture is boiling, stirring constantly. Cook for another 1-2 minutes until the mixture is clear and thicken.
Add 2 cups of halved strawberries and vanilla. Stir coating all the strawberries with the sauce, simmer for 1 minute or until the strawberries start to soften; set aside to cool to room temperature.
The pie filling can be refrigerated at this point if making the fruit salad later.
To make the fruit salad.
In a large bowl, add 2 quarts of sliced strawberries, pineapple chunks, and blueberries.
Add the pie filling (homemade or canned) to the prepared fruit and gently fold with a large spatula, being careful not to break up the fruit.
Serve immediately, or refrigerate for later.
Don’t forget to add the vanilla if you’re using canned pie filling. If the pie filling becomes too thick, thin it up with a little water. Keep in mind that pie filling is thick and will thin out when combined with fruit.
