Apple Pie is not actually an American dish, but it is definitely associated with America now. There is no reason why people around the world can’t celebrate Apple Pie Day. This sweet dish was very famous in countries like England and Holland in centuries, both recipes are centuries old.
Apple pie has been around since the Medieval. A Dutch book, dated 1514, contains a prescription for the Appeltaerten. It consists of a standard pie crust, soft-sliced apple slices, and some tasty spices, especially cardamom, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, buttermilk, sugar, and all – cooked in a traditional Dutch oven.
There was also a version of Apple Pie in English, dating back to Chaucer’s time. The English version also recommends adding a mixture of apple and spice to the mixture of orange, mushroom snout.
Traditional Swedish apple slices require bread crumbs or rolled oats instead of pastries and are served with custard or ice cream. In France, apple pie is presented upside down as tarte Tatin. The French also developed their own apple pie, an innovation that added a new dynamic to the flavor. They were the ones who decided to add cheese to their pies, which really provides a surprisingly delicious taste.
In the 17th century, apple pie was finally introduced to the American colonies. Over time, apple trees (which were not native to the United States) began to grow, making baking much easier. Now, Apple Pie has become part of the American identity, because Apple Pie is the most eaten American in the world.
