My mom makes a mean sweet potatoe pie but my aunt makes one that my mom think is better than hers. My mom won't ask her for the recipe but she does know that one of the ingredients is VINIGER????? I have searched and searched the internet and have not come up with any sweet potatoe pie recipe that contains vinager so I am asking here to she if anyone has one or knows why vinager would be added and how much.

I make sweet potato pie and I have never used vinegar. Nor have I heard of anyone else using vinegar.

vinegar in pie filling? :shocker: i hope it's a neglible amount that wouldn't be tasted in the final product.

i can't imagine what benefit vinegar would give to the filling. could it be that she adds a few drops to the water as the sweet potatoes are boiling to maybe tenderize them or something? i'm reaching. i just can't see it.

why don't you just ask your aunt?

who knows? it might not even be the vinegar that makes her pie taste better than your mom's; it might be a completely different ingredient altogether.

asking your auntie directly would cut all the guessing out so you can get to baking that thing! ;)

good luck.
