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!
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 tbsp vinegar
- 2 tbsp flour
- 1 cup water
- Small lump of butter
- ½ teas lemon extract
- 1 baked pie shell
- Combine the sugar, eggs, vinegar, flour and water in a double boiler and cook until thick and smooth, stirring occasionally.
- Just before removing from heat stir in the butter and the lemon.
- Pour into the pie shell; let cool and refrigerate.
I really need to get back to reality and start cooking something more to our liking, but it is fun to put in some of the more wacky dishes I come across………….enjoy!
