Secret Scotland

If it's secret, and in Scotland…

Today is Strawberry Cream Pie Day

28 September is trawberry Cream Pie Day.

Combinations of strawberries and various cream goodies seem to feature in special days, and probably with good reason.

When it’s good, it’s very very good.

The ‘ordinary’ strawberry we know today was first bred in Brittany, France, in the 1750s through a cross of Fragaria virginiana (Virginia strawberry) from eastern North America and Fragaria chiloensis (Chilean strawberry), brought from Chile by Amédée-François Frézier in 1714. It is now established around the world for its fruit, and it is appreciated for its characteristic aroma, bright colour, juiciness, and sweetness., and can be found in many treats such as milkshakes, fruit juice, ice cream, preserves, and of course, pies (with cream).

As always, I like mine basic, simple, and messy.
