Reviews for Triple Fruit Pie
"C hrisBoyce, you need to buy a box of Minute Tapioca. Kraft is one brand..The box is about twice the size of a pudding box. Many fruit pie recipes call for tapioca, and it's not the pudding. It's a thickening agent. Margie-Lou"
"An excellent pie. Used fresh rhubarb and frozen berries. This will become a spring tradition."
"One of the best pies I have ever eaten. I was not a rhubarb eater until I visited my sister-in-law's and she served me this pie. I asked for the recipe and now make it every year during rhubarb season."
"This recipe was wonderful it tasted great. However I am not sure if I did something wrong because my pie didn't settle it was really runny. I was confused on the tapioca. I just purchased the Cook and Serve Jello Tapioca and made it and then added 1/4 c. of the tapioca to the mix. Was this correct or what was the correct way? More specific instructions would have been helpful. Over all though runny or not it was delicious!"
