Does anyone have a tried-n-true Raisin pie filling

I am having "THE" hardest time locating a raisin pie filling that I can process to give out as gifts.

I thought maybe the grape pie, as they will "sorta" reconstitute to grapelike consistency, but not quite.

Ideas?

I have about 50 lbs of raisins to find something to do with!

I hoped someone would offer a tried and true recipe for you. I can't because raisin pie has never been a favorite of ours but I see there are many "favorite raisin pie" recipes available via Google.

In theory you could can any of them as long as you don't include any of the cornstarch or flour they call for but use Clear jel instead.

I particularly like the Ball Blue Book recipe for pear mincemeat that includes 7 lbs of pears and 2 pounds of raisins. I don't know how you're going to use 50 pounds of raisins! We like pear mincemeat (no meat in this recipe), and you can use the jar of pie filling for either making pies or mincemeat bars.

Good luck!

ok I took a regular raisin pie recipe and subbed out the cornstarch for surejel & canned it for the length of fruit pie fillings.

Surejel or Clear Jel? Big difference.

I always get the names mixed up; the one specifically to make pie fillings :-)
