Fruit of the Forest Pie

Creating a Thanksgiving Feast on a Budget

Fruit of the forest pieFruit of the Forest pie is one of my favorite fruit pies – simply because there are so many yummy flavors melding together. You get sweet and tart all rolled into one! Depending upon your preference it is so easy to adapt to different ratios of fruit. Like strawberry best? Add more strawberries. Like apple best? Add more apples. Make this pie exactly the way you want it! Another easy tip – this pie works well using frozen fruit!

I was a bit sad to not have any rhubarb to add to my pie. I love the tartness of rhubarb, plus it brings back so many wonderful memories of my grandmother’s rhubarb pies and jams. This summer I plan on freezing some rhubarb so that I will have it available when I need it for this pie! Since I did not have any rhubarb, I threw in some cherries instead.  Most of the fruit I used for this recipe was frozen. Fresh works fine, but the frozen was easy for me to have on hand and works just as well.

    With all the frozen fruit, does it get too liquidy?

    1. Stacey says:

      Hi Beth, mine turned out delicious and not too liquidy. I know frozen fruit tends to add a lot of extra juice, but maybe the addition of the fresh apples helped soak some of it up? Plus, the frozen fruit was thawed when I mixed it with the apples, so you can also adjust the amount of liquid you add into the fruit mixture before filling the pie crust.

  2. Stace, I can taste this pie just looking at the picture. I look forward to making it soon.
