Cherry Berry Peach Pie Recipe2018-08-22
Pies may have started out as meaty, savory affair but soon became entrenched as a fruit pastry that equals dessert in many food cultures.
During medieval times in Great Britain where the dish originated, pies or “cofyn” were tough containers that had to be cracked open for you to scoop out the crow or other meat filings cooked inside. What we know today as fruit pie was then called tarts. Over time, language evolved and the term pie became used for the sweet dessert filled with fresh, in season fruits baked in sweet flaky crusts.
In the past, sugar was expensive, and often reserved for royalty or the very wealthy. As fruit orchards sprang up across the US, and sugar plantations in mainly Georgia and Louisiana were able to provide affordable sugar, the popularity of everyday consumers making pies, jellies, jams and cakes became widespread. This Cherry Berry Peach Pie is a great way to enjoy both fruit and the sweet goodness of a tasty pie.
