What in the World is Vinegar Pie: Recreating a Historic Recipe


In the south they make this pie even today. Vinegar pie is a nice balance to aide with the digestion. Trying something "new to you" can be self gratifying. Homemakers should experiment with variety across all boards.

Ah, aiding with the digestion is an excellent point! And it's always fun to experiment, indeed. Thank you for reading!

Really enjoyed your take on this! I am rereading they entire series of " Little house on the Prairie " books from my childhood. I'M a young...old lady...giggle! They have mentioned it twice now, in two different books. Curiosity, got the better of me...thank you for explaining, while making it!

Should have also added at my old age I many recipies handed down many generations, this was one I had never heard of

Hi Wendy,

Thanks for reading. I had not heard of it prior to this experiment, and certainly didn't remember it being mentioned in that series. Thanks for sharing that! Vinegar pie really was a relic of a particular time and place in the West!
