Traverse Magazine, a really great regional mag, published a surprise today, a video of me making an apple pie! I had no idea they were planning to do this. It is in honor of Pi day which is tomorrow, 3.14 or March 14. Now I don’t much about Pi but I do know a lot about Pie. And of course I use leaf lard in my pie crust. I render the lard myself from my very own hogs, but that is another story. Last November they published a feature article about me and my place, Hillside Homestead and at that time they published a video where I make pie crust! The day the videographer was here, I suggested we make an apple too. I mean what the heck?! I wasn’t gonna waste all those pie plates we had just lined with paste (old 19th century cook books call pie crust, pastry or paste). I figured that footage was no good since they didn’t use it last November. What a big surprise Today to see a new video, Thanks Traverse Magazine!
