Clear Jel? is a chemically modified corn starch that produces excellent sauce consistency even after fillings are canned and baked. Other available starches break down when used in these pie fillings, causing a runny sauce consistency.
This is a 2.5LB bag of Clear Jel?, there are about 3 cups in 1 pound of Clear Jel?.
Clear Jel? is a corn starch that has been modified to give it special and unique characteristics when used in food products. It can be used for canned fruit pie fillings because it does not break down in the acid food mixtures and does not thicken enough during heat processing to interfere with the intended effect of the heat on killing bacteria during canning. It is preferred for thickening canned pie fillings as well as other foods over other corn starches because it has less or no aftertaste, the thickened juices are smooth and clear, and foods thickened with Clear Jel? may be frozen.
Clear Jel? is a common ingredient in may pie filling recipes and can be a hard item to find. There is no substitution for Clear Jel? that can be made in most recipes. This means you cannot use other corn starch, flour, tapioca, or other thickener in the recipes.
