Surprise! Your New Favorite Apple Dish Isn't a Pie or Cake
Psst, apple lovers—over here! We've got some contest news you'll want to hear.
When we first kicked off our latest contest, Your Best Recipe With Apples, we asked you for "sweet, savory, tangy, unpredictable, and everything in between." And boy, did you deliver. Of the many, many submissions we received, more than half were for sweets, but an impressive 40% of the bushel were for savory dishes.
A very reliable indicator of a successful recipe is whether it’s endured through generations. Classic recipes that have stood the test of time bear the stamp of approval of thousands of cooks and bakers—the culinary equivalent of great music. We’re still playing the Rolling Stones today for good reason!
But some recipes, despite their enduring nature, get a little lost in the shuffle as time goes by. Case in point: Boston cream pie. It hasn’t disappeared altogether, but it’s nowhere near as prevalent as similar vintage (and geographically-niche) recipes, like St. Louis butter cake or Key Lime pie.
