Thank you, Joni Gee, for a wonderful orange postcard!

So, if you want to make Orange Meringue Pie, take:
  • 1 1/2 cup orange juice;
  • 1 1/4 cup sugar;
  • 6 Tbsp. cornstarch;
  • Dash salt;
  • 4 eggs, separated;
  • 1 Tbsp. lemon juice;
  • 3 Tbsp. grated orange rind;
  • 1/2 tsp. grated lemon rind;
  • 1 1/2 cup orange sections;
  • 1 9-inch pie shell, baked;
  • Meringue

Eating Well in Florida:
Mix sugar, cornstarch and salt in 11/2 qt. saucepan. Stir in orange and lemon juices gradually. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until mixture thickens and bubbles. Stir in orange sections and boil for 3-4 minutes, stirring constantly. Mix 1/4 of hot orange with slightly beaten egg yolks then blend all back into orange mixture in saucepan. Continue to boil and stir for 3-4 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in orange and lemon rind. Pour into hot, baked pie shell. Spoon meringue on hot filling, sealing to edge of crust. Bake at 375 degrees until delicate brown - about 7-10 minutes. Cool away from draft.  Meringue: Beat 4 egg whites and 1/4 tsp. cream of tartar until foamy. Beat in 1/2 cup sugar 1 Tbsp. at a time. Beat until stiff and glossy. Beat in 1/2 tsp. vanilla.
