Hi: What brand of pita pockets do you purchase? In the past when I have filled them, they just fall apart before I can finish them. Is there a secret to this? What am I doing wrong?

Have you tried Kangaroo's pockets? They work great!

Kangaroo Salad Pockets are already opened and ready for filling. I find they hold together best.

But keep a few things in mind to keep pockets from falling apart:

1. Don't overstuff. They'll hold about 1/3 cup of fillings. Too much more, and they crack.

2. Soggy fillings can cause pockets to tear. Our Pocket Diet Recipes modify your favorite combinations to work in pita pockets.

3. Cold pitas tear easier. I keep my pitas in the fridge, but warm them for a few seconds in the microwave. Leaving them at room temperature works too.

4. Chop food finely. The sharp corners of an apple cube or chunk of celery can push through the pita.
