Helpful hints

    • Due to the high carbohydrate content, a half portion is recommended if you have diabetes. Sugar substitutes can be used to replace sugar in many recipes. Check with your dietitian for adjustments to recipes or serving size based on your individual carbohydrate requirements.
    • If sugar substitute is used instead of sugar, carbohydrate is reduced to 20 grams, carbohydrate choices are reduced to one.

Strawberry Pie

MelSalvo says:


Sounds a lot like strawberry glaze/cream pie. I would like to learn to make the clear glaze like this strawberry that you can get at Sherrie's Restaurants, for lemon, peppermint, apple, peaches etc.. Anybody have a foolproof recipe? I've never cooked a pie in my life, need to learn. (end-stage-on-dialysis). I don't have diabetes.

Strawberry Pie

I used this recipe instead of my usual one because I couldn't get good nutritional stats on the strawberry Jello. Used 1.5 lbs strawberries total. My strawberries weren't very good, so I increased the sugar by 1/2 cup. Too sweet! Would've been better with 1/4-1/3. I cooked the filling for a good 10-15 minutes, but after being in the fridge overnight, it didn't set. Not enough cornstarch or cook longer?
