Wouldn't you think of the word America. But what specific fix symbols. Come to mind the Statue of Liberty Baseball Burgers a world class albeit very expensive college degree. Those are all good guesses but for a a long time a sweeter treat has represented the best and worst of the United States Apple Pie. If you're from around here then it's a good bet that you've heard the oft-recited recited phrase as American as Apple Pie. But what's the origin of this patriotic slogan. First let's back up and look at how apple's landed on America's shores ores apple's had been cultivated around Europe and Asia for thousands of years but when European colonists arrived in the Americas they found only wild crab apples small Soured dry apples.

I think down centuries before a recipe for Dutch Apple Pie can be traced back to fifteen fourteen and the English were so enamored with apple pies in the late fifteen hundreds.

He became a symbol of rugged individualism individualism and frontier expansion and in the years since the United States has developed a whole slew of truisms associated with apples including an apple. A day keeps the the doctor away and one bad apples oils. The bunch the phrase American as Apple Pie popped up in print as early as nineteen. Twenty eight was being used to describe I blue Henry Hoover the first lady of the Hoover Presidency and what a good homemaker she was but it wasn't until World War Two. The apple pies really became stamped into the American consciousness as a patriotic pastry by then good. Apple's had been common for a few generations and the dish was thought of as Homey and Dispel Jack due perhaps to a popular song titled. Ma I miss your Apple Pie. Published in nineteen forty one and apple pie being the most frequently served desert at American military posts during the war. It became a bit of a mean for American soldiers to tell reporters that they were fighting for mom and Apple Pie and boom boom. The Apple Pie became American given apple pies strong associations with America. It's perhaps not surprising that it's not really a homegrown. American can product but something baked overseas and brought to these shores but since immigrants are a key component of the United States there's perhaps no better symbol of America in this delicious Dessert Desert.
