Last Thanksgiving I tried a pie from the Joy of Cooking that sounded amazing.
Called an Ohio Shaker Lemon Pie it consisted of lemons sliced paper thin and macerated in sugar. This recipe is similar.
The pie was beautiful. The flavor was overpowering. It was almost inedibly sour and bitter. I was the only person who finished my slice.
What did I do wrong or is this pie meant to be excessively sour and bitter?
