In the Instagram reel by Geraldine DeRuiter (@theeverywhereist), we see a slice of pie with a near-transparent filling. The text on the video reads, "I made clear pumpkin pie?! It's totally transparent. And giving me Crystal Pepsi flashbacks." We also see the Instagram user tasting her creation. She declares that it "somehow tastes like real pumpkin pie?! (I might be a culinary witch)." In the caption, she has provided a "vague" recipe for the pie. She suggests using a blind-baked premade or homemade pie crust.

To make the 'transparent' filling, she first dissolved plain gelatin in water. Next, she added salt, sugar and a few drops of highly concentrated pumpkin pie extract. This mixture was heated over medium flame until the sugar dissolved. Next, she added some ice and then poured it into the crust. The pie was finally kept in a refrigerator to set. Check out the post below for more details.
