 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      1/4   ts           Salt
    1 1/4   c            Flour
      1/2   c            Lard -- chilled
    3                    Eggs -- lightly beaten
    3       tb           Water
      1/4   ts           Vinegar
    1 1/2   oz           Unsweetened chocolate
    3       tb           Butter
      3/4   c            Dark corn syrup
      1/2   c            Brown sugar
      3/4   ts           Vanilla extract
    1       tb           Rum
    1 1/4   c            Chopped pecans
   Mix the salt into the flour and cut in the lard.  Measure out 1 tablespoon
   the beaten eggs into a small bowl and reserve the remaining eggs.  Add the
   water and vinegar to the bowl and stir. Slowly add the liquid to the flour
   and lard, just until the mixture holds together to form a dough.
   Lightly flour a work surface and rolling pin and roll the dough into an
   11-inch circle.  Fit it into a 9-inch pie pan and refrigerate it if you
   to finish the pie after several hours, or freeze it if you are completing
   recipe at this point.  This will prevent shrinkage.
   Melt the chocolate and butter together in a heavy saucepan.  Set aside and
   allow to cool.
   Stir the corn syrup and sugar into the reserved eggs.  Add the chocolate
   butter, vanilla, rum and the pecans.  Mix well and pour into the pie shell.
   Bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour, or until set.  The filling will rise
   and then fall.  Remove from the oven and cool on a rack.  Serve slightly
   or at room temperature.
