Grandma Eiting’s Strawberry Pie

This recipe comes to us from Ryan’s Grandmother-in-law, his wife Kim’s Grandma Eiting from Minster, Ohio.

Judging from some of the ingredients, it’s probably not exactly as old timey as some, but it’s delicious!


1 cup sugar
3 tablespoons corn starch
3 tablespoons light Karo syrup
1 cup water
3 tablespoons strawberry gelatin
3 drops red food coloring, if desired
2 ½ pounds or 1 ½ – 2 quarts of hulled strawberries
8” or 9” pie crust
Sweetened whipped cream


Combine sugar, corn starch, syrup, and water together in a saucepan.  Bring to a boil and cook 1 minute until very thick.  Gently stir in strawberry gelatin and food coloring.  Cool until room temperature. 

Slice berries or use whole.  Lightly brush pie crust with a small amount of glaze.  Alternatively, layer strawberries and remaining glaze, ending with the glaze. Chill before serving.  Top with whipped cream and enjoy!
