User Rating:  / 0


4 cups cherries, pitted and halved

3 Tablespoons tapioca

1 cup pure cane sugar

¼ teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons lemon juice


Line an 8 inch pie pan with heavy foil or freezer wrap, allowing it to extend 5 inches beyond the rim.

Mix all of the ingredients and pour into prepared pie pan.

Loosely cover the filling.

Freeze until firm.

When firm, remove from pie pan and wrap tightly. Return to freezer.

When you want a pie – prepare the shell

Pop in the pie filling (remove wrap)

Dot with one tablespoon butter

Sprinkle with cinnamon if you want

Put on top crust – and finish as directed.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 1 hour, or until syrup boils with heavy bubbles that do not burst.


You can do this with pretty much any fruit filling. Just prepare the filling according to the recipe and freeze it for alter use.


Pretty cool, right?
