“I prefer to fresh fruit to cooked fruit pies. Having perfect Blueberry and Strawberry pie recipes, I wanted to find a Fresh Peach Pie recipe as well. I found this recipe with a gelatin base and it turned out pretty well. What particularly like about this recipe is that you could substitute all kinds of combinations of fruit and jello flavors. I think that Peach and Blueberry would be a good combination. Also consider adding crushed pineapple to the mix.” – April Ferre
