Kenmore Honored Harvest Time entry by Anita Van Gundy, Iowa State Fair

This old fashioned Vegetable with veal Pie is a recipe I found in an old cookbook my grandmother had. The cookbook is close to 75 years old. It’s interesting looking through the cookbook, it tells how to skin a rabbit & make rabbit pie, which I have made rabbit pot pie, but the Vegetable with veal Pie is one of my favorites. I also make it with turkey or chicken. My mother made pot pie when I was growing up & in the summer she always put in fresh vegetables from the garden. When I was growing up we always had a garden, but now I get most of my vegetables from the local farmer’s market. I think the fresh vegetables make a difference in the taste of the pie especially the sweet corn. The fresh herbs in the crust also give it a really good flavor. I have 4 children, 14 grandchildren & 1 great grandchild. I have given the recipe to my children & I hope this recipe will continue to be passed down as it is one of my favorite comfort foods.
