Okay, people. Let’s just be clear on this: Not everything retro is all that. No need to throw out central air conditioning and women’s right to vote.
But homemade pies? They’re the very definition of harmless bygone-era goodness. Too bad no one’s got time anymore to bake ’em.
Actually, you will, once you’ve stocked your freezer full of Ever So Humble Pie. The made-from-scratch lovelies are whipped up locally and by hand. (The proof: Each bears the thumbprint of the person who made it.) They ooze juicy, classic flavors like strawberry-rhubarb, wild blueberry, raspberry-nectarine, and New England apple.
Buy them frozen and when you hanker for a slice of just-baked bliss, simply pop one in the oven and do the honors yourself.
The kicker? Every last pie is guaranteed to be without trans fat, hydrogenated oil, artificial colors, or preservatives.
Now those are some traditional values you can definitely get behind.
