Talk about take me back! I always wondered how Gramma did this now I know! Great recipe. Great taste. My 4 year old son helped me with this. I am going to try this with Raspberry Vinegar. I just know it will be great. Thanks for a marvelous trip down memory lane and for restarting a family tradition. Read More

Its a good recipe but you have to like cider vinegar. That is all I could taste. I do prefer the recipe with white vinegar and less vanilla and less sugar. Its a personal taste of course. What I did love was the ease of this recipe. My hubby who never had vinegar pie and my 5 year old son LOVED this recipe and thought it was great. I have a bit of a cold..so maybe not the time to rate things on taste... I took some of the reviews and cooked it at 324 for 45 minutes and it was perfectly done. Read More

My grandpa always said "I like everything except Vinegar Pie". Well he now offically likes everything. I made this pie for him as a joke & he ate the entire pie by himself. No one else in my family was brave enough to try it; but that is just how grandpa likes it the whole pie to himself:-) Read More

I tried this out of curiousity but it was really good. I followed the recipe exactly and it came out perfect. Had the consistency of a custard pie. Was slightly tangy and very rich. Would definitely make again. Read More

This was excellent! I had a cinnamon graham cracker crust I needed to get out of the way but no 1/2 & 1/2 cream or gelatin most other pie recipes call for and this was perfect! The sweetish crust and the tangy/tart filling were perfect together! My husband isn't a dessert eater and he had two generous pieces. I was worried about it setting up so I raised the temp to 375 for the last three minutes and cooked it three minutes beyond the end time. The filling was not as stiff as pumpkin pie or cheesecake but wasn't terribly runny either. The crust didn't burn but came close enough that my husband asked about it. I might just raise the temp to 325 for the whole duration if it is a problem after I make it again. I followed the recipe exactly otherwise. It would be easily modifiable with different spices extracts and liquors. Read More

Love this pie! I was reading a book set in the South and the main character kept talking about his mom's vinegar pie. I figured I'd give it a shot and man is it good! Read More

Tastes great despite the name. Easy to make. Could have used more advice as to whether the filling should be slightly oozy at the 45 min mark (mine was) or whether a knife inserted should come out clean (similar to a pumpkin pie). It gelled up a lot as it cooled but was still slightly oozy aferwards. Read More
