Very few desserts say “America!” as clearly as apple pie. From backyard picnics to summer evenings at your grandma’s house, apple pie is a dessert that we all associate with memorable times spent with family and friends.
But did you know that the apple pie came into existence long before America was born? The first recorded history of this classic dish dates back to 1381, during the time of Chaucer. The original recipe is far more elaborate than what we’re used to today, as their apple pie not only included apples, but also called for:
- Good spices
Aside from these additional ingredients for the filling, one of the major differences between the original apple pie and what we love today is the lack of sugar. Seriously. How in the world did they survive?
Well, it wasn’t necessarily because early Englishmen didn’t like sugar in their dessert. Quite the opposite – they probably loved it! Sugar just wasn’t as readily available in 1381 as it is today. While we can just run over to the grocery store when we run out of sugar, sugarcane in England was imported from Egypt – and was extremely expensive.
Many chefs would opt for honey as a cheaper alternative. As the recipe spread throughout Europe, each culture added its own unique spin, resulting in Dutch-style and Swedish-style apple pies.
Apple pie would eventually cross the Atlantic and establish itself as an American favorite. With so many nostalgic feelings attached to this dessert, the Apple Old Fashioned is one of the most comforting flavored alcoholic drinks around.
