Clinch Mountain Vinegar Pie

This recipe sounds like something I might want to serve my enemies by the name of it. Or maybe a threat to the kids, “If you don’t clean your room, I’m gonna feed you a big piece of vinegar pie”! But really, it really doesn’t sound too bad, just very different and another recipe from my Hillbilly Cookin’ pamphlet. Apparently Clinch Mountain does exist according to my google search and it does serve Vinegar Pie. It’s between Tazewell and Morristown in Tennessee. If we ever get to Tennessee, we’ll have to give them a try. Yesterday, cheesy fudge, today vinegar pie, gotta get back to some kind of sanity for sure!

  2. Thanks and please let me know whenever you go there and also how they compare! I found the recipe in an older cook book I have and it just sounded so interesting…… Really enjoyed your comment; please give me a heads up. thanks again!

  3. Trust me, the pie (and the food) is very good at the Clinch Mountain Lookout Restaurant. I plan to go back when I am within a half day’s ride to get there.

    If this represents their recipe, I will certainly make it and let you know.
