Try out this delicious dessert on National Peach Pie Day, especially if you haven’t tasted it yet.

HISTORY OF NATIONAL PEACH PIE DAY

We don’t actually know how or when National Peach Pie Day celebrations began. Since the peach fruit harvest usually takes place between June and August, August 24 was picked probably to bid farewell to the harvest season and feast on some delicious pies. Some people observe National Peach Pie Day as an extended celebration of National Eat A Peach Day.

Pies are easy to make. A pie is a baked dish prepared by a pastry dough casing such that the fillings get covered. The fillings in a pie can either be sweet or spicy, and some pies may even contain meat. Pies can be served in a variety of sizes, that range from bite-size for a quick snack to the ones that can be shared with the entire family. A pie made with fresh peaches is not just delicious to eat but also quite healthy. It tastes even better when served with a generous helping of vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, or a glass of cold milk. Since peaches are also rich in nutritional content, a peach pie is the perfect way to get your vitamins while also enjoying a well-loved dessert. On this day, instead of just peach pies, you can also taste pies made of unique fillings such as mangoes, avocados, or strawberries. You can expand your palate and try pies from different regions to appreciate how truly versatile the dessert is. As the peach season comes to an end, we can think of no better way of celebrating than National Peach Pie Day.
