Flipper Pie Update!

I realize that it has been only a few hours since I posted about my finds from Bidgood's, but it is now lunch time and I really wanted to try the flipper pie. Let me tell you, this is the real meal deal! To summarize this experience...

Looking at the ingredients list, flipper is the fourth item on the list. So, I had anticipated there being a little flipper, but not as much as was actually found. Essentially, flipper should have been listed first on the ingredients list - there is a lot of flipper in the pie! The ratio of flipper to carrot (the ingredient that is actually listed first) is 5:1. This is not an exageration.

So the big question, how does it taste? I am being completely honest when I say that it is actually pretty good! Maybe a little too much flipper for my liking, but I am certainly not complaining as the flipper is the most expensive ingredient. I would buy the flipper pie again.

I was going to upload pictures of the flipper pie experience, but under the flaky crust, it isn't so pretty. The look of the flipper meat does not do the taste justice!

Hey Réal, I didn't know you had a blog! Evidence of Matthew's awesome communication skills again! Are you missing Ottawa yet? I haven't read all your postings yet but it looks like you are having fun on the rock, the pictures are gorgeous. If you are back in town over the holidays give us a call, we would love to see you and Lucia and catch up.

Real, I am so jealous - I have also wanted to try Flipper pie for years!! Oh, if you go back to the local preserve place before coming back , can i have some green tomato pickles and rhubarb relish?? (Christmas is coming..)
Thanks for the posting; I am visiting vicariously through you!

I don't know about the green tomato pickles, but I know I've seen the rhubarb relish. I'll see what I can do!
