When I was growing up, pie was made with fruit. There was peach pie, cherry pie, apple pie, and maaaaybe berry pie (that was exotic!). But then, one day, I ventured into the wilds of Indiana and discovered that not all pie was fruit. Some pie was weird. Some pie was. . . vinegar.
Intrigued, I ordered the mysterious vinegar pie. It smelled like vinegar, but it didn't taste like vinegar. It was creamy, and different, and interesting! So I decided to make it for myself.
While searching for vinegar pie recipes I discovered a whole host of different pie ideas that I'd never heard of; chess pie, mock apple pie, oatmeal pie, etc. I resolved there to broaden my pie horizons!
So first up, in the Great Pie Experiment is Vinegar Coconut Pie. I ran across this recipe under the name "French Coconut Pie" and it seems to basically be vinegar pie with coconut. Its definitely outside of Vinegar Pie's "poor man's pie" roots, but its delicious.

Buttery coconut pie, with just a hint of vinegar. Delicious!
