Grandma’s Apple Cider Pie from 1957

5 cups sweet apple cider
1/4 cup cider vinegar
2 cups water
2 cups sugar
6 tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
3 eggs, well beaten
1 recipe pie dough
Ground nutmeg

Pour cider into a saucepan, cover and
cook over heat so slow the cider never
gets above a simmer, stirring frequently
until reduced to only one cup thick liquid.
Cool. Add cider vinegar and one cup of
water; bring to a boil. Meanwhile mix
sugar with flour and cinnamon and stir in
remaining cup of water. Gradually stir this
into boiling cider mixture, cooking and
stirring until thickened.

Line a well-buttered nine-inch pie plate
with pie dough and pour in this cider mixture.
Sprinkle lightly with nutmeg and lattice the
top with pie dough strips. Bake 10-minutes
in hot oven (450 degrees F.). Reduce heat
to moderate (350 degrees F.) 10 minutes or
until crust is golden-tan and filling is
set. Cool slowly. Serve with chunks of
snappy cheese.
