Shoney's Strawberry Pie

1 Quart strawberries
1 Cup sugar
Pinch of salt
4 Tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 Cup water
Baked pie shell
Whipped cream

Cut green tops from strawberries. Mash 1/2 of the strawberries with a potato
masher. Combine mashed berries, sugar, salt, cornstarch and water in a large
saucepan. Cook until the mixture becomes clear. Refrigerate for at least 2
hours. (You want the sauce to cool completely) Fold the whole berries and
the sauce together.

Pour berry mixture into a baked and completely cooled pie shell. Garnish
with whipped cream. At Shoney’s, the sauce and the berries are kept in
separate containers until they are needed. The waiter or waitress will go
back and put the pie together when they are ordered. They put 1 pint of
cleaned berries into an already baked pie shell, add one cup of sauce and
the whipped cream.
