Instant Clear Jel is an amazing food starch that thickens foods instantly without cooking. Use it in cold drinks and pie fillings. It is recommended that Instant Clear Jel be thoroughly blended with sugar or other dry ingredients before it is added to liquids in order to prevent lumping and to insure smoothness. The presence of sugar acts to control the rate of the hydration of the starch.
Instant Clear Jel will begin to swell or thicken as soon as it is added to water, milk or juices; it will impart a smooth, short texture when fully hydrated. The viscosity will increase slightly upon heating. It has excellent heat and acid resistance and can be used in acid containing foods and in those applications where heating is required.
Instant Clear Jel also has good cold temperature storage stability making it particularly well suited for refrigerated and frozen foods. Store in a cool, dry place. We do not recommend refrigeration or freezing.
For One Pie: Combine 3 Tablespoons Instant Clearjel with 1/2 Cup sugar. Add 1 cup water or fruit juice and combine with enough fruit for one pie. Add food coloring if desired. Chill and serve.
