Sweet as Pie – National Apple Pie Day!

Apple Pie
Posted: May 13, 2021

Dating back to at least 1381, we celebrate this patriotic pie on May 13th. This delicious dessert is spiced with cardamom, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, and more.  The slices of soft apples are a comforting base and it’s even better topped with creamy vanilla ice cream.

Apple pie is synonymous with America. During WWII, soldiers said they were fighting for “Mom and apple pie”. Fast forward to the 1970’s and advertisers began using apple pie in jingles. If you are going to celebrate this pie, the foundation will always be the crust, but did you know textured variegates from Balchem can create the same buttery mouthfeel and sensory experience of a buttery, flakey pie crust?

Your next ice cream and frozen dessert innovation is only limited by your imagination. We can help you create an Apple Pie inspiration that reminds you of Granny’s Apple Pie by using our real apple fruit preps and flavor systems, textured pie crust variegates, and deliciously indulgent caramel ripples make a decadent dessert that will have you saluting this All-American favorite dessert. Do you simply want to be more adventurous with your ice cream topping with sauces and syrups? This is where our flavor systems come into play! We can turn your ideas into a reality.

How can you celebrate National Apple Pie Day? You could try baking what is called The Perfect Apple Pie! Get creative and add your own twist on it – caramel apples, create a crisp topping with oats and brown sugar, or use a different ice cream rather than vanilla. The possibilities are endless with this patriotic staple!
