4 cups cherries, pitted and halved or 4 cups of peach slices, pears, apples, etc.
3 tablespoons tapioca
1 cup white sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons lemon juice



1 Line 8 inch pie plate with heavy foil or freezer wrap letting it extend 5 inches beyond rim. Add the 4 cups of filling mixed with other ingredients. Adjust sugar amount for the type of fruit.

2 Loosely cover filling with the lining foil or paper. Freeze until firm. When firm, remove from pie plate and wrap tightly. Return frozen pie filling to freezer.

3 To prepare pie for baking: For each pie prepare a two crust pastry. Line 9 inch pie plate with pastry. Remove freezer wrap from frozen shaped pie filling. Place in pastry lined 9 inch pan. Dot with 1 tablespoon butter and, if desired, sprinkle with cinnamon. Adjust top crust and finish pie as usual. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for about 1 hour or until syrup boils with heavy bubbles that do not burst.

4 Note: With such fruits as peaches, pears or cherries, stir about 1/2 teaspoon ascorbic acid into sugar before combining with fruit.
