Clearjel (Cook Type) is a modified cornstarch used by many commercial bakers in fruit pie fillings. This cornstarch works well with acidic ingredients and tolerates high temperatures. The first starch to be recommended by USDA for canning fruit pie fillings at home. Due to acid and freeze-thaw stability, maintains consistency after canning or freezing. Also use to make smooth gravies, sauces and soups with the same advantages. 1.5 lbs. (approx. 2.5 cups) is enough to make fillings for up to 18 pies. Storage life of at least 1 year when stored in a cool dry place.

Use Clearjel if you're canning homemade pie fillings, since it doesn't begin thickening until the liquid begins to cool. Clear Jel is a superior version of cornstarch because it tolerates higher temperatures and works well with all types of ingredients including acidic ones. Use as a thickener in pies, stews, sauces, gravies and pudding.

Use 1/4 cup of Clear Jel for every 1 quart of liquid.

- Use canning fruit pie fillings, jams, jellies.

- Thicken sauces, stews, gravies.

To use Clear Jel in a hot dish such as gravy, first mix a small amount in cold water, then add gradually to the hot liquid, mixing constantly. Or, mix everything together while cold, and then heat and stir to thicken.

Shelf Life: 22-24 Months

    I bought the cook type clear-jel for canning my apple pie filling. It worked perfectly, I inadvertently ordered the instant clear-jel on the next order and it was chaotic to say the least. Could never get rid of the little pieces of jel that would never dissolve. PLEASE be sure to use the cook style for less stress in canning. I am sure the instant would be good for gravies so for that reason I will give it 3 stars.

    Great product. My peach piemail filling came out perfectly.

    This stuff works great...far better than regular cornstarch. I would recommend that you dissolved the ClearJel in water to make a slurry first before adding to your hot fruit mixture, as it will form dry clumps that are next to impossible to stir out if adding just the measured amount dry.

    This makes the most beautiful canned apple pie filling. It doesn't clump or change color. Instead the filling is as pretty as when you first cook it and jar it.

    Don't know how I would have gotten through canning season without it. Mixes easily and well, no need to mix separately. Great stuff.

    We made peach pie with this and it worked perfectly
  • Author: Verified Customer
    We used the clear jel to prepare our Apple pie filling and we water-bath canned 2 pecks of apples this year. I resisted the last few years buying the "cook type" jel because it was so hard to source locally. Found this on Hoosier Hill Farm and just bought it after struggling again with canning. Its a huge difference. The instant is great when you're cooking and need it right away. The packaging was great, the container is nice. Would be nice if I could buy a "refill" type bag in order to retain the plastic container when I have to buy more. I'll be buying again!

    Wonderful product! Mixes in totally smooth, (quickly too!!), not gritty at all! No aftertaste, no added coloring..just a great thickener! Works perfect...even after canning, and cooking pie filling in a crust- it gives you a perfect filling! Not runny,not watery, not gummy! If you are making pie filling without this- your pies must not be that great!!! Seriously, make pie filling like a pro!!

    Works wonderful for my canned apple pie. Couldn't find this anywhere in town and as always Hoosier Hill Farm came in a clutch with just what I needed
  • Author: Verified Customer
    Other than thickening up very differently from anything else I've used, this worked perfectly! It started gelling in clumps, but if you just keep stirring, it thickens up fast and turns out exactly how it should. Made excellent apple pie filling, with zero "extra" taste

    Works just as advertised. I had a few clumps that were hard to stir in but they eventually broke up when I used a whisk.

    No lumps, provides a very smooth consistency to your cobbler or pie fillings.

    Works wonderful and my canned cherry pie filling turned out wonderful
  • Author: Verified Customer
    I am very pleased with the value and size of product you receive! I made the mistake of keeping it with other strong scented spices (onion, garlic, turmeric) from canning last fall and when I got it out this spring it had absorbed into the product. So I ordered more and am keeping it separate from my other spices! Everything I've ever made with this has come out just as it should which factors to your recipe of course and your jel quality!

    Worked very well when making my peach pie filling. A keeper
  • Author: Verified Customer
    Worked perfectly for canning peach pie filling. Also used it in a fresh peach and blueberry pie as a substitute for the flour in the recipe, can't believe how well the filling set up. You could cut perfect slices without fryit running everywhere. Can't wait to try it in other applications. You really get a lot, and the container is so handy.

    Worked like a charm...used it for canned cherry pie filling. I've never used it before but it was just like making a gravy...only sweet! I was amazed at how thick it actually got.

    Worked great in my canned apple pie filling since cornstarch isn't reccommened for canning anymore. I substituted this cup for cup for the cornstarch and it worked great. Really makes a more appetizing looking product. Will buy more next year when it's apple season.

    I just tried this in a homemade canned apple pie filling, so it sure looked like it thickened well, but have not a chance to try it in a pie after the canning process. I have every confidence that it will work as advertised and recommended by my canning book.
