NATIONAL STRAWBERRY CREAM PIE DAY

Saturday, September 28, 2019

Each year on September 28 strawberry lovers get to enjoy their favorite fruit in the form of pie on National Strawberry Cream Pie Day.  Fall in love with strawberries all over again with the Strawberry Cream Pie recipe listed below.

 

Strawberry cream pie can be made in many different ways. Some recipes use a custard or pudding base with strawberries either folded in or on top. Others are made with cream cheese or whipped cream. Whichever you prefer, strawberry cream pie is a delicious treat.

Five Food Finds about Strawberries:

• Strawberries are one of very few fruits that have seeds on the outside.

• The fruit (which is not a botanical berry) is widely appreciated for its characteristic aroma, bright red color, juicy texture, and sweetness.

• It is consumed in large quantities, either fresh or in prepared foods such as preserves, fruit juice, pies, ice creams, and milkshakes.

• The garden strawberry, Fragaria × ananassa, is a hybrid species that is cultivated worldwide for its fruit, the (common) strawberry.

• The garden strawberry was first bred in Brittany, France, in the 1750s via a cross of Fragaria virginiana from eastern North America and Fragaria chiloensis, which was brought from Chile by Amédée-François Frézier in 1714.
