    I made this same pie in home economics. Carpentersville, Illinois. Mrs Betty Stevens was my teacher. Had to make a fruit pie. All good fruits were taken. Looked at recipe and all called for canned fruit. Just used fruit cocktail instead. Its still just as good.

    Do you use fruit packed in juice or in syrup. (I know it says to reserve "juice", but that could mean either, to my way of thinking.)

    im curious about baking instead of using the prebaked pie crust like ive seen with canned peach pies. i'm up for it just didn't want to make a mess, i'm just starting to make desserts for my grand kids, working on a different banana pudding right now.

    I've never used fruit cocktail to make a pie before, but I will be again because this was amazing!! So tasty and easy to make. Love the fact you don't waste the juice from the tinned fruit either, makes the most amazing sauce for the fruit!
