Safu Pie

There are many types of fruit here I've never encountered before. So far, most of them are very tart. (When I eat them I make those faces like when one bites into a lemon). Some are much better with sugar, others are just still too tart for me. Right now, it's Safu season. 
Safu is a fruit that turns a purple color when ripe. You need to cook it first, as it's rather firm. Then you can eat it with salt or with sugar. I decided after the first time I tasted it, it was similar to rhubarb, and thus perhaps one could make a rhubarb pie with it. So I did. The result: Safu pie

My pie crust didn't really roll out too well, so I improvised.

The final verdict: A congolese liked and asked for the recipe. Success!
