Antoinette E. Photo sent to me

So how did all this start? It began innocently enough with an online friend’s posting after I posted the recipe for cranberry pie. Then she added pickles on it!!! Really? Really???

For the CRANBERRY PIE recipe click here The strangest part of this is that almost half is already eaten…..

For all you doubters my friend Antoinette made this pie and sent me the picture.

My next desserts with pickles challenge thanks to Linda Seccaspina who knows I can’t resist. But I think I will try a combo of sweet and sour pickles finely chopped with crystallized ginger; that will make a lovely carmelized crust. The pickles in the photo don’t even look cooked. All y’all going ewww are gonna be sorry!

So not content, I searched far and wide for another pickle pie recipe and found this beauty. Would Antoinette try this one too? I loved it!! —after all… A ‘naughty pickle’ is how I’d best describe myself.

The UTAH PICKLE PIE

Utah Pickle Pie

UPDATE
So yesterday I posted a pickle pie recipe and said I needed to make it because well–pickle, pie, it was a direct challenge. Some of you laughed, some of you scoffed. But I shall have the last laugh because it is FABULOUS!! It’s like a sugar cream pie with the sweet pickles carmelizing the top.

This morning I got an email from a producer at WHDH TV in Boston—“Hi LInda, I’m a producer at 7News in Boston. This recipe is taking over the internet! Can we please use the photo of your Cranberry Pickle Pie on air and online with courtesy to you? Thanks!”So let this go to show you– it does not matter how hard and long you work on history pieces, or columns or anything like that. When it comes down to it– you don’t need to pose naked…Pickle Pie will get them every time LOLOL

and it made FOX news…

and then it made Mashed and it get going on and on.. and again I did not have to get naked for it to go viral

Twitter Can’t Believe The 2 Ingredients In This Thanksgiving Pie

The now-viral cranberry pickle pie is exactly what it sounds like — a traditional cranberry pie topped with pickle slices. It’s garnered a lot of attention on Twitter, as people have responded to what many think is a horrendous, disgusting combination — and an abomination that doesn’t deserve a spot on the Thanksgiving dessert table. “Never heard of that before. Not sure that I want to again,” one person commented, while another wrote, “Hell no would I eat this, it sounds horrible.” Even celebrity chefs Alex Guarnaschelli and Duff Goldman have Tweeted their disapproval of the pie. read more here….

Shake Shake Shake Senora– Coconut Cream Pie Weekend in Carleton Place!

Back in the late 1800s Europeans and Americans were really in to their imported tropical fruit like pineapples and bananas, but the coconut hadn’t yet taken off. This was mostly because they were hard to transport without spoiling, and because people didn’t really know what to do with them once they had them in their kitchens.

Everything started to change when a French company based in Ceylon (now Sri Lanka) started shredding coconut meat and drying it for easier shipping, thereby making coconut accessible to European chefs and home cooks.

Shortly after gaining popularity in Europe, coconut took the United States by storm when a Philadelphia flour miller received a shipment of coconuts as payment of a debt from a Cuban businessman. In 1895 he set up a factory for shredding and drying his coconut meat and single handedly put coconut into the hands of American homemakers and commercial bakers and candy makers.

Recipes for coconut cream pie start showing up in cookbooks almost immediately, and by the early 1900’s coconut custard and coconut cream pie was everywhere. So let’s talk Coconut Cream Pie Weekend in Carleton Place!

She’s My Apple Pie!! Pie Contest Tomorrow!

Standard

This was last year’s pie contest at the Carleton Place Farmer’s Market? Are you ready for tomorrow? Will we get to taste your pie?

Apple Pie,

What a wonderful treat,

With a flaky crust
And filling so sweet.

Baked in the oven
Three-fifty degrees,
Then there’s a ding!
And it’s ready to please.

Smells like cinnamon
And sugar and spice,
“Where’s my piece?”
“I want a slice!”

One tasty bite
And you’ll want more;
As you sink in your teeth
Your spirits will soar.

A sweet, warm hug,
As pretty as snow,
Apple pie is the best,
And I love it so    —Kiya 2010

After the contest and the winner was called,

For 2 bucks a slice,

This piece of apple pie was all yours,

I sighed and I heaved, and had not one ounce of glee,

Because alas, you see, there was no gluten-free!!
