Vinegar Pie
(Grandmother Stroud’s recipe)

1 pie crust, blind baked

2 eggs
6 tablespoons white vinegar
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons butter, softened
1 cup water
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon lemon extract

Mix ingredients together in a saucepan and cook until thickened.  Pour into baked pie crust and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Vinegar pie is a pie that originated in the 1800s when fruit – lemons – were not in season and unavailable.  The pie is supposed to have a lemony flavor.
