STRAWBERRY PIE BACKSTORY

I just won’t eat fresh strawberries any more without maple syrup.  The sweet tang of freshly sliced berries dripping with the rich golden silky flavour of real maple syrup, well just try it.  I guarantee you will give it a second glance.

My sweetie and I are RV travellers, and two summer ago, after a lovely long trek through the US south and out to the Maritimes, we stopped just outside of Quebec City to stay for what was supposed to be one night.

We’d had some mechanical difficulties with the RV – (that’s a whole other blog post) and I just wasn’t ready to head for home.  So we decided to stop, following a random campground sign about 30 miles west of Quebec City.

What we found was a little slice of heaven, wonderful campers who were so helpful and welcoming.

 

Once we were settled and had shared some wine with our new neighbours who had helped us back in, we received a bowl of fresh strawberries and Quebec Maple Syrup, with instructions.

 

I was a bit overcome, I must say, probably because we were just so darn tired, but that was it for me.  Strawberries must now have maple syrup.  But what would it taste like in a strawberry pie?

Well, remember that slice of heaven?  I found it once again.

TIP FOR MAKING A PERFECT STRAWBERRY PIE

  1. Once the strawberries are washed and hulled, let them dry on paper towel for ten minutes.
  2. The secret to baking fruit pies is to manage the liquid, so make sure the cornstarch is mixed in well.
  3. Follow the recipe instructions exactly. 
  4. Mound the strawberry filling into the chilled pie crust shell.
  5. Before you decorate the pie however, pour 1/4 cup of maple syrup over the entire pie.
  6. Have decorating your pie!
  7. Brush with egg wash
  8. Bake in the bottom third of a 400F oven.  What does that mean?  It’s important to make sure the pie cooks evenly and thoroughly on the bottom.
