About: Dad, maker, dreamer, hacker, painter.
Here's a quick and easy summer recipe for a backyard BBQ. The kids'll love it.
This is my very first recipe Instructable, be kind.

  • 1.5 litre box of fresh strawberries
  • box of Jello (I used watermelon)
  • 3/4 cup of water
  • 1/4 cup of sugar
  • prepared pie crust


Preheat the oven to 425F.

step 1 - warm cut up strawberries in a saucepan on low heat with 1/4 cup of sugar. The strawberries should release some of their water and soften a little making a nice coulee or syrup. Stir often. (You could throw this in the blender, strain and serve on ice-cream...strawberry coulee...mmm...but we are making a pie) – about 10 minutes.

step 2 – while your strawberries are yummifieing, boil the 3/4 cup of water and stir in the Jello mix. Set aside.

Step 3 – add the Jello water to the strawberry goop and stir.

Step 4 – pour into waiting pie crust, put into oven for 15 minutes.

Step 5 – cool in refrigerator for 3-4 hours.

Step 6 – Share and enjoy!

    This looks like a great summer treat! I'm a huge fan of fruity pies, especially if they don't have a lot of ingredients :)
