FABBY: "Babaco" Pie

 You have to cook the fruit with all pie ingredients cut previously in cubes.
 I usually have my patè-brisè recipe for pie crust.....my fav is from Martha Stewart's recipe book.
 Here's the pie with the meringe on top, I usually spread it all around it, but later it just shrinks, lol!  My mil's cake silver spatula with her engraved initials.
 The table is set to have a piece of pie with tea, or coffee. with my mom's silver tea spoons from her childhood.
 This china was made at our past Ceramic Co. and the green design was the original decoration taught by the Spaniards in the colonies, the green was a natural die for ceramics, they had no other, except for a not pretty brown shade as well, I got the design from authentic pieces my Mil had and from books.
 I love the tea pot with the rooster...the originals always  had farm animals as handels, we've used them in most of them as well.
 The salad, or cake plates.  The tabletopper was my mil's, but it's not vintage, it blends nicely with the off white china though, as is the tablecloth.
I had promised some friends  to show them the Andean fruit called babaco turned into a yummy pie, see, I make it with my recipe for pineapple pie because of course, there's no pie recipe for this, there's other local recipes, but hubby loves my pie version.   Above is  a picture of the "babaco" fruit from my earlier post.  Thank you my friends for your  visits, I'm always thrilled to have you for a piece of pie!

Hi Fabby!

I do not know where you store all of your gorgeous dishes! I have not seen the same set twice yet and I think it has been MONTHS!!!
:)
You are so lucky friend, to have such a wonderful collection. I think these green ones may be my favorite pattern to date!

Such a pretty setting and love the tablecloth too. Your pie is picture perfect. :) Wish I could taste it.

"Fabby" MUST be a shortened version of FABULOUS! (I looked for a hint in your sidebar but found none.)

The dishes & your arrangement of those IS fabulous - and if I weren't on this dang diet I'd love to have a piece or two of that pie!

Your china set is just so lovely on that white tablecloth. How elegant everything looks. And I do adore the cute little teapot.

You must have some large cabinets to store all of the things in.

Thanks for coming to my post. I do love to chat.

Johanna said...

Hi Fabby,
I am again off from your wonderful ceramics. Just green is also very beautiful. My o my, you could make a ceramics exhibition with all that pretty patterns. You are really a great designer. This Babaco Pie looks really yummy. I haven't seen this fruit here but maybe I had not recognized it. Will have a look.
Best greetings, Johanna

Marigene said...

Fabby, all of your dishes are beautiful, but I have to say these are by far my favorites...green is my favorite color. Your pie looks delicious...the babaco reminds me of starfruit, somewhat. What does it taste like, is there anything you can compare it to?

Amy said...

How unique. I've never had a babaco before. Looks like a papaya and a star fruit got married and babaco is born! hahaha...thanks for sharing your gorgeous pie. :)

Maria Andrade said...

Hi Fabby,
Your pie looks delicious and the china with all the table arrangements are gorgeous as always...
What a wonderful collection of china you have!
You know, the rooster, like the one I saw on one of your pieces, is a typical figure of traditional Portuguese pottery associated to an old city in the north of Portugal.
We call that rooster "Galo de Barcelos".

Nayana said...
