Grain-Free Fresh Strawberry Pie

The strawberries have started!!

We went a little crazy at the Farmer's Market and bought a flat.

So this is what we made: fresh strawberry pie.

2 cups soaked and dehydrated almonds, ground up in coffee grinder
2 eggs
1 t sea salt
1 stick butter, melted on stove
1/3 cup coconut flour

4 pints strawberries
2 packets gelatin
1 cup stock
1-3 cups hot water

To make crust, combine ingredients and squish into pie pan, making sure to come up edges.  Bake at 350 degrees for 18 minutes.

Wash 3 1/2 pints of strawberries and remove green tops.  Slice lengthwise and set aside.

Take 1/2 pint strawberries and wash them and remove the green tops.  Blend them in a blender with 1 cup of stock.  Measure how much liquid you have.  Transfer to a small pot and bring to a boil.  Turn off the heat.  Sprinkle in the gelatin packets and wait for one minute.  Then add the water, making 4 cups total (take the quantity of the strawberry/ stock and subtract it from 4 cups, then add enough water to make 4 cups).  Stir until gelatin is completely dissolved.

Remove crust from oven.  Arrange sliced strawberries.  Pour gelatin/ strawberry/ stock mixture over berries.  Refrigerate for 3 hours to set.  Enjoy!
