Celebrate National Pi(e) Day with a Maryland Classic Pie: Eastern Shore White Potato
Apple, key lime, and pumpkin get all the love. Today, on National Pi(e) Day, why not celebrate with a Maryland classic: White Potato Pie! The origins of the White Potato Pie are murky, with some recipes noting that it was a poor man’s dessert, created by those who could not afford high-class ingredients. Joyce White, a culinary historian and consultant – who is currently leading The Great Maryland Recipe Hunt initiative – suspects this pie has its origins in Maryland’s agricultural history.
