The pie filling isn't too high in sodium? My toddler niece just suffered from e coli toxic shock syndrome and is currently on dialysis but improving. My birthday is next month and I want to make something I know she can also enjoy with us. This looks like it may be safe. Please confirm if this would be safe for her. She may still be in the hospital for my birthday next month, but not sure if she will still be on dialysis or just under observation while her kidneys improve on their own. Either way, I know that one thing she may have to become accustomed to is a low sodium diet. Dietitian comment: Anything under 140 mg per serving is considered low sodium. If in doubt about using this recipe we recommend you talk to the dietitian taking care of your niece.

I have replaced the cherries by raspberries. I grow them in my garden. Pluck them, freeze them. Just as delicious as cherries. I have been making this recipe for over a year now on a regular basis. Yummy, Yummy.

Is it possible to substitute fresh/frozen cherries for the canned pie filling? Dietitian comment: Yes, you can make your own cherry pie filling using either fresh or frozen cherries. You can use the My Recipes feature in DaVita Diet Helper to analyze and save your recipe.

Is it safe to use EnerG egg replacer in instead of the eggs. My friend told me about using it. Yes you can make the substitution to further decrease cholesterol, sodium, potassium and phosphorus.

Tried this for my dad who's on dialysis, and it's delicious. My mom, who doesn't have kidney problems, now requests it every other week. Recently found an old family recipe for sour cream cherry cake, and this is almost identical. A must-try.

Just curious.. I looked up a cherry pie filling recipe and inputed it into my Master Cook and came out with a very high potassium amount (709 mg) per 32 ounce (1 quart), why is the canned so much lower. Dietitian comment: My program includes a generic cherry pie filling with 954 mg potassium and Solo brand with 929 mg for 32 ounces. The recipe only calls for 20 ounces (580-596 mg)which is divided between 24 portions, approximately 25 mg potassium per serving.

This is a simple but delicious recipe--great visual appeal too. Nice & moist! Only thing I needed to buy was the cherry filling.
