      Great question. Clear Jel is a modified starch used as a thickening agent in home canning. Clear jel doesn’t breakdown in high temperatures. It replaces cornstarch that is dangerous to use in home canning. Sure jel is a pectin. If you use this in the strawberry pie filling then it will most likely turn it into JAM. So you can’t interchange the two and expect the same results. As for artificial sugar, I don’t have a great answer. I have been taught by Cooperative Extension agents to not divert from proven and tested recipes.

      1. Where do you find clear jel?

  4. Is this for a baked pie crust or do you bake it with the filling in a double pie crust?

      You use this pie filling like you would any other canned pie filling you buy from the store.
