I learned a fact today that I thought I would share with you guys cause it just might blow your minds just as it did mine. Let's start with the stereotypical american scene shall we? American flag being flown by a bald eagle and people below it with some holding guns, some holding burgers, some holding beers and some holding pies. Apple pies to be exact. 

Today I learned that not only was apple pie originally not made with sugar.. I also learned that it is not even american at all! Nope! It was originally created in England! Made from: 
apples, figs, raisins, pears and a pastry shell, the recipe was first written down by Geoffrey Chaucer way back in 1381. So, while it may be americanized now, the country's favorite pie is in fact a british treat.
