Homemade Blueberry Pie Filling
Making homemade blueberry pie filling is really quite easy. Trust me, if I can tackle the job of canning pie filling, so can you! (no pun intended) Now that I can can my own pie filling, its become one of my favorite things too can. Let’s face it, the taste is incomparable to store bought. Once you start making your own pie filling and tasting the difference, you’ll be well on your way to canning just about any fresh fruit you can get your hands on.
A Few Lessons Learned
I have been canning for about 4 years now and I have learned two important lessons about canning…Number One: Have everything you need lined up and ready to go..the canning process goes remarkably fast..and it goes so much more smoothly when everything is ready before you start. Number Two: You don’t need to make 10 quarts of the same fruit pie filling or 12 pints of the same type of jam/jelly or marmalade. I find that making 2, 3 or 4 quarts of one type of fruit pie filling or 3 to 6 pint jars of jam/jelly or marmalade is enough to meet my family’s needs.
Make What You Need
Frankly, we just don’t need 10 quarts of Apple, Cherry or Blueberry Pie Filling. Four quarts of the same type of pie filling works the best for us. This way we can keep two quarts in our pantry and give away two quarts if we want too. (homemade fruit pie filling makes a great gift) We also like to have a variety of fruit pie filling in our pantry at all times. This allows you to whip up something sweet anytime..such as: coffee cake, cobbler, tart or pie. Recipe featured in the photo: Blueberry Almond Dump Cake.
