September 17, 2014: Today is National Apple Dumpling Day, and in today’s episode of Food Confessions, I don’t think I’ve ever had one. They appear to be entire apples, probably cored, wrapped in pastry and baked. Now, I’ve had apple pie (which is awesome), but I’ve never had an entire cooked apple of any kind.
It’s also Constitution Day, a holiday all about the USA. It was on this day back in 1787 that the delegates of the Constitutional Convention met for the final time to sign the document they’d hammered out. It looks like they laid out where everyone was supposed to sign, in a neat and tidy manner, probably to avoid any John Hancock-grade unpleasantness like the last time they all signed a big document.
