Nothing is more American than apple pie, except maybe, arguing about who makes the best apple pie or what the secret to perfect apple pie is.
My strawberry patch is going nuts. Almost makes me look like I have a green thumb. (Don’t be fooled.) This recipe describes a classic strawberry pie with fresh berries and a strawberry glaze. I was excited for a delicious way to put the berries to use and an excuse to make the glaze from scratch as most strawberry pies use a jar of red goo that kinda grosses me out.
The recipe for Buttermilk Pie was handwritten on an index card in green pen. In a sea of pencil filled recipe cards I was intrigued, but the name…made me a skeptic. Another gamble was about to start but hey, at least I had a way to use up this extra buttermilk in the fridge!
