This easy homemade strawberry filling is so true to its name. It is so easy to make ever for first timers and you would want to keep making it over and over again.
Way before I started making my own fruit filings, I used to find it very convenient to buy ready made ones from the stores. But now, since I make my own, I will never go back to the store bought ones. When making your own, you get to not only adjust the taste to suit your liking, you can also make them to the consistency you want. I like my fruit filling to be packed with fruits rather than the sauce, and I can only achieve this by making my own. Plus, it is so easy to make them, I have gotten hooked to making my own fruit fillings and jams ever since I tried for the first time.
There are only 5 ingredients that are necessary to make this fruit filling - strawberries, sugar, cornstarch, water and lemon juice. These are all easy ingredients that you can easily find at home and so is the process of making it.
Basically, most fruit filling recipes start with fruits and sugar as the main ingredients. Cornstarch is added to thicken the fillings and in some fruit filling recipes, including the blueberry pie filling and this strawberry filling recipe, I also added some lemon juice.
The fruits are mixed with the sugar, lemon juice, water and cornstarch and cooked on low heat until the fruits are soft and the sugar-lemon juice mixture has thickened.Once thickened, you need to cool it and store it until its needed for use.
The other point I wish to make about this easy homemade strawberry filling is its versatility. Not only can you use it as a pie filling, you can also pair it with so many other desserts and food - cakes, cheesecakes, pies, tarts, ice cream, doughnuts and just about any other food you can think of.
Its a great way to use up those extra fruits you have around during their full season and a great way to enjoy the fruits even when they are off season.
That is pretty much all I have to say about my easy homemade strawberry filling. Here is the full recipe with exact measures and making method:
200g fresh strawberries
100g white sugar
1/3 tbsp (2.5g) cornstarch
1 tbsp water
1 tsp lemon juice
And that is pretty much how I make my easy homemade strawberry filling.
