Last weekend we had to go to Fort Lonesome in Lithia, FL to pick a bunch of strawberries to make organic jam, so in the hippie version of killing two birds with one stone I made sure to make my way over to their orchards and pick some oranges from their trees in order to make this pie.
|Oranges...on a tree!|
|Yours truly, picking fruit off a tree.|
While this was a good, and most likely tasty, plan, I did overlook the fact that it would be hard work. I had to juice oranges. I had to boil a mixture of those oranges and a whole bunch of other stuff until it turned into a weird, thick delicious concoction. Then I had to make meringue, which is surprisingly difficult considering it's just a few different basic ingredients.
Anyway, I did all that (and did it well, if I might say so) and then baked it for awhile and it came out tasting quite good. Here's my picture-by-picture rundown of the process:
|Get some oranges|
|Turn those oranges into orange juice|
|Cook those with sugar until thick and put in a crust|
|Beat eggs for 40 years until you have meringue|
|Bake it for awhile until it looks awesome|
