Vinegar Pie In the old days when lemons were too expensive, people often made this pie as a replacement for lemon pie. Try it and see what you think.
1 cup sugar 3 egg yolks 4 tablespoons flour ¼ cup cider vinegar 2 cups boiling water 1 pie shell, baked
Meringue: 3 egg whites tablespoons sugar 1/3 teaspoon salt

Beat egg whites, gradually adding the sugar. Beat until stiff. Spread meringue over pie all the way to the edges. Bake for approximately 20 minutes or until meringue is browned.
