The apple pie is American, right? There is even an expression for the pure Americanism of the sweetness of what it says about something that is “as authentic American as the apple pie”. Here we will probably spoil a long and deeply rooted myth!
Maybe British’s transatlantic friends gradually become the main consumers of this wonderful dish, but the roots of the latter are on the island. One of the oldest references to the apple pie is in «The Forme of Cury» of 1390, as «Tartys in Applis» (tart apple), with the filling being in a pasty “case” but then not eaten and indeed, it contained no sugar.
Fortunately for our palate, the outer side of the pie, not just now consumed, it is also delicious, while the filling is sweet enough to be eaten comfortably and dessert.
An easy recipe with a high apple content! Served warm with ice cream.
