Literal Fruit Pie 221/365
There's something just so perfect about cartoon food. All Link needs is some Tabantha Wheat, some Goat Butter, a bit of fruit and a pot over an open fire... and he can make a flawless fruit pie. Which appears to be a bloody great big pie crust, with whole fruit chucked on top.
I tried my best to recreate it exactly as it looks in-game, guessing at the fruit based on a few coloured pixels. For my money, the pie uses oranges, pears, blueberries, pineapple and... honestly something that looks most like pomegranates, but I settled on plums, because who in their right mind would stick a whole pomegranate on top of a pie?! C'mon Link, get it together.
Chop up all of these fruits, with the exception of the orange, just use the peel, for both zest and pectin. Throw in a pan with sugar, and simmer until tender and no longer watery, before being let cool and set a little. Oh, and take out the orange peel!
In the meantime, the shortcrust dough gets made and rests. When everything's ready, assemble and cook your giant pie!
Then, fry some thick slices/halves of the fruit in butter and sugar to caramelise them. Top the pie with whipped cream, the fried fruit, and a sprig of mint to complete the look.
Andrew, I tried to get a cross-section shot 'cause I know that shit is your jam, but between the filling not being set enough yet and the cream melting slightly from the pie that was still hot after 2 freaking hours(!)... it, uh, wasn't in a cooperative mood.
(P.S., this photo is for the 9th. I haven't gone to bed tonight (last night?), because this goddamn pie took longer than expected at every step! On the plus side, the other day was my birthday, so, birthday pie! I literally ate a quarter of this before editing. Soooo good! 🤤
