Apple Pie in the New England Fall Time

Article and photo (of Andrea DiReda Tabor, Ever So Humble Pie Company) by Eric H.

Bookmark and ShareFall time in New England and apple pie have always seemed like a perfect autumn duo.

Picking apples at the local farm and then coming home to start the process of apple pie-making truly brings out the best in fall. The unmistakable sweet apple pie aroma resides quite harmoniously with the outside fall colors, the slight chill in the air, a football game on the television, and a roaring fireplace in the living or dining room (in our case, an electrical version).

For those who would rather buy an apple pie than make one, we recommend shopping at your local farm stand or bakery over the supermarket -- generally, the fresh taste comes out more when shopping locally. At the top of the pie chain, however, is the local pie shop -- if you are lucky enough to have one near you. In the southwest metro Boston suburbs, we recommend the Ever So Humble Pie Company's, of Walpole, Mass., all-natural version of apple pie. Freshly-peeled apples tossed with brown sugar and spices, and heaped high beneath a delicate, flaky crust make this apple pie a "you just can't eat one slice" concoction.

Andrea DiReda Taber, owner of the Ever So Humble Pie Company Apple Pie, creates this remarkable-tasting ready-to-bake pie, made out of all-natural ingredients, at her East Walpole production and retail shop. This is certainly not your basic healthy-but-cardboard-tasting apple pie! While some other pie-makers include trans fats, monosodium glutamate, artificial colors and flavors, and and other offending, unhealthy chemicals, Tabor crafts her hand-crimped apple pies with a slower production process, paying close attention to using quality ingredients.

"Mass produced products use more seasonings than fruits, so customers know they are tasting the 'real thing' with our pies," said Taber.
