My grandma used to make a large batch of pie filling, portion it into freezer bags, and then freeze each bag in a pie pan. Once it was frozen she'd pop the bag out of the pie pan and stack them in the freezer. They'd then be frozen in the correct shape and volume.

I don't know if she froze pie crusts. . I never saw her do that. But I imagine you could do it the same way the freeze grocery store crusts.

I saw something on the net about adding apple juice. Does that help? OR has anyone tried mixing watermelon with some other fruit....thinking strawberries...or peaches...those are in season here now.

Any thoughts?

I'm sure it will turn out great.

My mom and grandma canned pie filling, but I only used the canned filling they gave me for cobblers. I tend to make enough pies throughout the summer to always have them on hand when needed.

Thanks to climate change, figs are coming ripe now. I did six jars of whole fig preserves yesterday. Probably going to do another couple of jars today. I got blackberries from my sister and will be doing blackberry lavender jelly before market this weekend. I also have to get local strawberries so that I can make the fig/strawberry jam with the figs that were too ripe for preserves.

Glass top? Technically you're not supposed to. You'll void your warranty, if there still is one. The canner, filled with water, jars, and food, is too heavy. But I know people who do it with no problems.

I'd look up the manual for your stove.

I've heard it's more to donwoth the cycling of the burners and not preserving properly? I have a propane burner that is good for canning but it's so hot outside!

Whole Foods had corn, 10 ears for a dollar. Can it be frozen raw? Or blanched?

No idea, but I'm totally jealous of those prices! I haven't seen corn for less than 4/$1 in years!

I haven't either! Whole Foods has these crazy sales every once in a while. I'll never forget getting chicken legs for 59 cents a pound last year!

I can on a glass top. My stove manual says it's fine as long as the canner fits the burner. They say not to use a ripple bottom Canner but I do with no issues. Boiling is boiling.

Freezing pies-- at the blueberry farm the other day they were selling frozen pies. They were not baked. Directions were 450 for 10 minutes, turn down to 350 for 30-35 minutes. They were 8 inch pies in disposable aluminum pans.

Does anyone have a recipe for pickled wasabi beans? I have beans cut to fit into 500ml jars, but I haven't found a good recipe yet for the brine.
