Where’s the full recipe - why can I only see the ingredients?

Always check the publication for a full list of ingredients. An Eat Your Books index lists the main ingredients and does not include 'store-cupboard ingredients' (salt, pepper, oil, flour, etc.) - unless called for in significant quantity.

Notes about this recipe

  • springandfall on July 25, 2014

    Something is wrong with this recipe. It never thickened as promised in step 2, probably because it uses no thickening agent (such as ClearJel). Second, it instructs you to prepare four pint jars but makes enough to fill seven. As a result I'm stuck with three pints of uncanned, extremely runny "pie filling" that I have to use now or freeze, defeating the point of undertaking this. All poorly written recipes waste time and ingredients, but poorly written canning recipes often waste large quantities, in addition to hours of work at the time of year when that work is most intense. In general I've found this book to be excellent, but occasionally there is a costly error like this one. I wish the Ball website would publish corrections to errors in this book to save readers the lost time, effort, and food.
