Blueberry Pie Filling

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Charlotte J

Clear Jel is a modified food starch (powdered form) that will not break down in high heat during processing. DON'T SUBSTITUTE!! Clear Jell is well worth the effort, it leaves a cleaner and thicker filling that is simply delicious. Kitchencraft (1-800-776-0575) in Waterville, IA sells it by the 1# ($3.25 + S&H) or 5# bags. Also sold by Bakers Catalog (King Arthur Flour) and also at Oh, now that about does it, even sells the stuff!

AWSOME RECIPE>I actually got 7 qrt jars and 7 pint jars? I am not disapointed about it either!
I CHANGED A COUPLE THINGS....I ommitted the jello and I used welchs 100% juice grape in step 2 when u mix it with the clear gel. I also omiited the karo syrup, trying for a healthier version. I aslo used
organic evaporated cane juice for the sugar. turned out sooooo will not regret this recipe.
