Combine juice, sugar, tapioca, cherries, food coloring, and dash salt; let stand 20 minutes. Line 9" pie plate with pastry; fill with cherry mixture. Dot with butter.

Standards For Good Pies:

Remember:

A good crust is flaky; tender and golden brown. This is accomplished by incorporating (using) four main ideas. These are:
1. Use as little liquid as possible. Do not over mix the mixture.
2. cut the shortening in a uniform texture and not too small or too large.
3. Use the correct oven temperature.
