Behold, Someone Made Clear Pumpkin Pie

What? How?

Posted on

Pumpkin pie is a gosh darned heckin' good American Thanksgiving tradition.

But what if it weren't... orange? Or any color at all?

BEHOLD. IT'S CLEAR PUMPKIN PIE.

The pie was developed at Alinea restaurant, a primo Chicago spot run by chef Grant Achatz.

Alinea chef Simon Davies said on Instagram that the pie is made using a rotary evaporator machine, which produces a liquid distillate of the flavor of your choosing.

So allegedly the pie tastes not just like pumpkin-flavored gelatin, but REAL PUMPKIN.

Naturally, some people on the World Wide Web are freaking out a wee bit.

The clear pumpkin pie looks like a jello shot

Clear Pumpkin pie makes me want to murder someone.

Clear Pumpkin pie so you can see your family’s holiday dysfunction inside.

Alinea also features cool stuff like EDIBLE BALLOONS...
