August 24, 2020 – National Peach Pie Day | National Waffle Day
Are You a Pancake Person or a Waffle Person?
Welcome to August 24th, 2020 on the National Day Calendar. Today we celebrate foods so delicious, they are hard to top!
Somewhere between June and August a peach tree will yield its golden fruit for around the space of one week. While most of us think of Georgia when it comes to peach trees, there are actually more of them in California and 20 states across the country produce peaches commercially. That’s good news for pie makers, for nothing tastes better than tree ripened fruit between two golden layers of flaky crust. And if you’re a scratch baker this pie is hard to beat with all the juiciness of Summer saved up for one perfect bite. On National Peach Pie Day celebrate the season that can’t possibly get better unless of course it’s topped with ice cream.
There are two kinds of people: pancake people and waffle people. Sure, pancakes are delicious, but if you leave them in syrup too long, they get soggy. On the other hand, waffles are built for that sort of thing and their deep pockets let you pile on the toppings and sauces. It was likely this feature that spurred Cornelias Swarthout to patent the waffle iron in 1869. Though this tasty breakfast has been around since the 14th century, the invention made waffles more readily available. And when folks tasted the Belgian kind at the 1964 New York World’s Fair, they found even deeper pockets for piling on the toppings. On National Waffle Day serve them anyway you please and invite your pancake friends to enjoy the difference.
