Don't be scared off by the name! My family all made faces when I told them what I was making but once they tasted it they were begging for more:) This pie is amazing!! It actually tastes a lot like a lemon meringue pie next time I think that I will put a meringue on top. The only thing that I did differently was that I used about a half tsp of lemon extract and half a tsp of lemon juice. Enjoy! Read More

Vinegar pie is a very old recipe and a very good one built for economy as most people have these ingredients on hand. The taste is sweet and citrusy. I used 1 tsp orange extract and a sprinkle of orange peel this time instead of lemon. It tasted sort of like a lightly flavored dreamsicle pie. This recipe did not fill my pie shell up as far as I would like but next time I will try multiplying recipe by 1/2 and adding meringue. Great old recipe Thanks! Read More

Sort of a citrus flavored egg custard. Taste much better than the name. Read More
