Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market: Strawberry Pie Recipe

That's right, these are the first strawberries of the season from Doran's Family Farm.

Michelle Doran of Doran's Family Farm's Eisenhower Strawberry Pie

6 cups strawberries, (washed w/stems removed)
1/2 cup sugar
6 teaspoons arrowroot (or 3 tablespoons corn starch)
1 tablespoon lemon juice

Pre-baked pie shell

Take 3 cups of the strawberries and mash them up. (I use a potato masher). Put them in a pot to boil.

Add sugar and arrowroot (or corn starch) to mixture when they start to boil.

Stir constantly until the mixture clears. Remove from heat and add lemon juice. Allow to cool and this is the glaze.

When cool, put in remaining 3 cups of berries and put in already cooked pie shell. Refrigerate and enjoy.

Serving Suggestion: Put whipped cream on top and some whole strawberries just before serving.
