I had never made a sweet potato pie before, but decided to give it a whirl.
Delicious flaky crust, check.
Smooth custardy filling, check.
Robust ham flavor, ch-
Wait . . . what?!?
That’s right, my sweet potato pie tastes exactly like ham. While I might be able to make a fortune with a new offering in the fake meats market, this wasn’t the taste sensation I was going for. I tried Googling this phenomenon but was unable to find anyone who’d ended up in the same boat as me. I’ll have to review my recipe, but I don’t remember cured meat being listed among the ingredients. Do you see any bits of ham in there?
So now I’ve got half a ham pie leftover. No amount of whipped cream can cover up that piggy essence.
