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
