This recipe has been in my family for many years..sometimes we made it for a "April Fools Day" desert. It will really fool people, they are amazed when I tell them it is made with vinegar, and no lemon at all! I should have posted this days sooner for this day......Sorry. But please try it before next year. It really is a delicious pie! 4/1/12
