Wisconsin Tomato Pie

Tell us about your proudest moment – or humble failure – in this week’s baking challenge.

This was a savory pie baked with our own home grown tomatoes. I have never used this fruit in a pie before. The flavor was excellent. But unfortunately the pie had a soggy bottom even though I let the tomatoes drain in the refrigerator overnight, longer than the recipe instructed. And I also pre-baked my crust.

Describe how you added a Wisconsin twist to your creation.

We have a greenhouse and grow many tomatoes from seed (in soil). They were so beautiful I had to try this pie. The recipe is from a 2014 "Zorba's Recipes" from WPR that my mom told me about. Thanks Dr. Zorba for this Wisconsin recipe used to make my Wisconsin Tomato Pie!

How did you do?

Pleasantly satisfied.
