Had to do some research to learn to use this product. However I'm extremely please with my result so far. Sour Cherry Jam, Canned Sour Cherry and Apple Pie filling so far with great results. With some more experience I'm sure it will replace flour or corn starch.
FIrst time I ever used clear-jel to can apple pie filling. It turrned out great! Beutiful, perfect jars of apple pie filling. Can't wait to try other types of fruits. Will definatly produce blue ribbon quality product for next year's fair.
We ordered 5 lbs of Cook type Clear Jel but it will not work like the Cook type we
have been using for 5 years. After talking to some others who use Clear jel we
believe we were sent Instant Clear jel.
After trying to get the 5 lbs of Cook type for almost 2 weeks we were sent 5 1lb bags.
We did call back but was not ready for what we heard. I did not get a clear answer
to. If you could not send me a 5lb bag, why not 5 1 lb bags from the start? Why would the
Rep say if you ordered another 5 lbs you would get the same that would not work for you.
We may not use as much as a bakery However the Lucky Horse Shoe Farm puts up
a lot of Pie filling & we use it for our Thai cooking.
We do know that what we got was the Instant Clear Jel. Why so hard to believe the bags
got mislabeled ? Also we love the herbs & plan on enjoy many more.
I do believe the other Organic Growers/ Organic food folks we talk with. All 4 said that
they all had problems like we did. This when they got Instant instead of Cook Type clear
I make apple, peach, cherry, and blueberry pie filling with the Clear Jel Cook Type. People rave about the pies and salad I make with it. It is so nice to have it canned and on the shelf ready any time I need pie filling. Plus, it's flavor is above and beyond the ready made brands. Thanks for the prompt delivery! The extra spice is a nice gesture, too.
Wonderful product. I used this last summer when we caned wild blackberry pie filling. We had made apple pie filling with cornstarch and the liquid has since separated in the canning jars. Those blackberries canned with the clear jel have stayed nice; no separation. It is what we will use from now on.
I was delighted to find this website. I have ordered spices from you.You can't imagine how happy I am with the Clearjel - I've canned 24 quarts of apple pie filling. It is the best recipe I've ever tasted and everyone raves about it. I make 16 pie crusts at a time and freeze them, so when I want a pie, all I have to do is roll out the crust and open a jar of apples. Thank you ,thank you, thank you.
