Sure you can now just buy the pie filling from the store and be done with it. Trust me, I was the queen of convenience. I just didn't think to question the products on our store shelves. And thats the EXACT reason why we've become so complaisant with food companies and the products they market. That's the exact reason why we've become a society riddled with chronic issues and ailments.
If you are looking to control your ingredients, provide a fresher, healthier alternative then you should make this. This recipe is so easy its laughable, plus its so versatile. I made this for a berry topping on top of my mini cheesecakes. Then I used it on my toast the next morning. I also think it could work nicely as a pie filling or atop a Brie wheel as an appetizer. The options are limitless if you get out of your own way.
Enjoy the recipe and let me know if you try it.
1 bag frozen blueberries (about 10 oz)
2/3 cup water
1/2 cup Swerve Confectioners sugar
1 tsp lemon zest (of 1-2 drops of lemon essential oil)
1 tsp Xanthan gum slurry*
Directions (Xanthan Slurry)
Ok so to be honest I don't really measure this.
