We must first look at the history of pie as a dessert to learn more about the delicious cherry pie. According to historians, the first pie was created by the Romans. They were inspired by the Greeks. The ancient Roman pie was very different from the modern desserts. These pies often had a sweet or salty filling that was placed inside a reed.
The reed plants were meant to hold the filling. However, the reeds weren’t eaten. They were used as containers for the filling that was then scooped out. Roman pie recipes weren’t always easy to follow, so fillings could have used a variety of ingredients.
The Romans began to spread their knowledge about pie and they started to travel to Europe in the 14th Century. According to the Oxford English Dictionary, pie was most commonly used during this period as European recipes were spread. Later historians discovered that the Romans had written the first pie recipe. It contained rye flour and goat cheese and honey.
These were not the first European pies we are familiar with today. They were often called “pyes” and had a bizarre recipe. These pies were made from meats with small prey and fowl. This was also known as the “coffyn,” and most of these pies had a lot of crust and very little filling. The legs of fowl were used to fill pies with fowl, and they were then put into the crust. They could be used as handles for eating the pie.
In the 1500s, fruit pies were developed. Queen Elizabeth I of England was the first to receive a recipe for cherry pie. The pies were popularized in America by being served in Roman style. This meant that the crust was removed after the filling was eaten. Researchers believe that “crust”, as we know it, was invented to replace “coffyn,” during the Revolutionary War. Pies have been a popular American dessert for centuries, and many people refer to them as “as American” as “as American” as they are “as American” as “apple pie”.
Pies are a well-known dessert choice. They are so beloved that there is an entire American Pie Council dedicated to them! These fun facts about pie may surprise or delight you if you are not a professional.
