As soon as we saw the recipe for this unusual pie in the morning paper, I knew I had to make it. I found it to be rather bland, but because the name is a little off-putting and unappetizing, it sat untouched in the refrigerator for 4 days before anyone gathered up the courage to try it.


vinegar pie

1 (9-inch) pie crust

1/4 cup butter

2 eggs

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup flour

1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

Heat oven to 400F. Line a pie plate with the crust. Melt butter, set aside. Beat the eggs in a small bowl, set aside. Beat the eggs in a small bowl, set aside.

In a large bowl, blend both sugars, flour and nutmeg until no lumps remain. Stir in vinegar, eggs, melted butter and 3/4 cup water until well blended. Pour into pie shell. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes or until filling is just set in the center. Remove from oven and let cool completely.
