Origin and History of Fruit Pies
Similarly to the meat pie, the origins of fruit pies date back to around the 16th century in the United Kingdom. It is believed that Queen Elizabeth I was served a cherry pie and thus began the evolution of fruit pies across the world.
Overview of Fruit Pie Varieties
Like the meat pie counterpart, sweet pies come in a wide variety of flavours. Generally, the fruit will be used as the fruit pie filling, and some common fruit pie varieties are as follows:
- Apple pie
- Cherry pie
- Apricot pie
- Rhubarb pie
- Apple and Blackberry pie
Benefits of Eating Fruit Pies
Eating fruit pies offers a delight for your taste buds in every bite. Often packed full of sweet fruit, fruit pies provide a healthier way to enjoy a sweet dessert while also being incredibly convenient to purchase and eat.
How to Choose the Best Fruit Pies
With so much delicious flavour to be had from fruit pies, it is essential that you can choose the very best fruit pies every time! Continue reading for a look at some ways you can ensure you select the best fruit pies:
Quality of Ingredients
First and foremost, choosing a fruit pie from a supplier that uses high-quality, fresh ingredients is a vital component of selecting a good pie. Traceable ingredients from quality-assured companies are a great way to ensure the quality of ingredients will be high.
The pastry is the main base of any fruit pie, so you will want to ensure that the pastry is delicious and perfectly cooked. An even and light-coloured pastry base is ideal to ensure that the bottom of the pastry does not end up soggy after cooking.
How to Store Fruit Pies
The best way to store your fruit pie will be determined by the type of fruit that has been used as the fruit pie filling and whether or not the fruit pie was fresh or frozen when it was purchased.
Fruit pies are best kept refrigerated for short-term storage. Most fruit pies, such as apple and apricot, will need to be eaten within a couple of days at most after purchasing. You can store some other types of fruit pies in the fridge for up to 3 or 4 days, but it is always advised to check the storage instructions from the producer.
Long-term storage of fruit pies is less common due to the delicate nature of the fruit. However, you can often purchase fruit pies that are frozen or fresh pies that can be frozen. Once the fruit pie is frozen, it can be stored long-term in the freezer. Typically, long-term freezer storage can be used for 3 or 4 months, but always follow the producer's instructions.
Steaming hot fruit pies is one of the most delicious ways to enjoy this pie. Thankfully, you can quickly reheat your favourite fruit pies at home so you can still enjoy them warm. Generally, the best way to reheat a fruit pie is by wrapping it in aluminium foil and placing it in the oven for a couple of minutes or until it is heated the entire way through.
How to Serve Fruit Pies
Fruit pies are sweet and delicious and are generally favoured as a dessert thanks to their sweet flavour. However, they can also be enjoyed as a snack, and custard, whipped cream or ice cream is often enjoyed on the side. Alternatively, fruit pies pack enough mouthwatering flavour to be enjoyed entirely on their own!
