The strawberry/blackberry pie is a small one (6") that we brought home, but I got a different slice at the shop: they called it CocoChoconut. Imagine if a pecan pie and a 7-layer bar had a baby - that's what it was like. Delicious.

Dad's job working at a fruit processing company (largest producer of applesauce in the world!) meant we'd get pie fillings from the company commissary for cheap. Dad LOVED pie, pretty much any kind. One time, my grandmother - Mom's Mom, not Dad's* - tried to make him tired of pie, so she made a different one every night for more than a week. She eventually threw in the towel.

*Dad's Mom wasn't much of a cook, honestly.

Sounds like a weird appetizer tray.

A company I worked for back in the early 00's partnered with a Japanese company on a smallpox vaccine (remember biodefense? Remember five people dying from an anthrax attack?). They were located in an area famous for horsemeat. RAW horsemeat. So when the Bus. Dev. folks and some of the reaserch staff working on the project went to visit, guess what they had to eat.

She should've planned on at least a month, and same pie every day.

I like the tartness and flavor of rhubarb, but I'm not a fan of the texture. Not surprisingly, I don't like celery, either.

#PayCloserAttentionNextTime

Probably a good idea. Sometimes brake hoods become unavailable.

I'm trying to decide on seeing how well these hoods for olde Dia Compes will fit on the Galli brake levers on the Legnano ($11 per pair)

Or just splurging on these $70 Dia Compe levers with the adjuster doodads up top:

I would eat applesauce every night for more than a week.

A rotating selection of pies? Yes, please.

Along those lines, I worked at a pizza place during high school - I do not easily get sick of pizza. Since we've been married (18 years), I've only shocked my wife a couple of times by turning down pizza.

Except I eat applesauce in the morning, not in the evening.

Maybe you're not cooking it long enough.

Interesting thing is that tartness, i.e. the acids in fruit, are where a lot of the flavor is. Gooseberries, for instance - Mom and Dad had gooseberry bushes, and the fruit themselves were inedibly tart. Baked in a pie with a lot of sugar, though, and the flavor was AMAZING!!! Possibly the best pie that I've ever eaten. Also note that cherry pie is made with tart cherries because Bings and Raniers would make a really bland pie.

I'm not a fan of mush, either. Maybe there's a happy medium where I'd be fine with the texture, but I haven't found it, yet (and I'm not too enthusiastic about lookin' for it, tbh).

My Dad showed Fred Rogers how applesauce is made.

Seriously! "Mister Rogers Neighborhood" was filmed in Pittsburgh, and of course the plant where Dad worked is also in PA - though its about a 4 hour drive. And the company decided Dad would be their best spokesman to show Mister Rogers how applesauce is made. So Dad was on Mister Rogers, back in about 1984.

I had it for lunch (cooked) in Italy back in 2013. Not something I would eat again.

Like most things, there's a point between underdone and overdone, where the stalks hold together but yield softly to the bite.

As you can see, my Dad was one of those guys who could pull off a bowtie!

At one point, there was talk of me making the trip, but I ended up not having to. I confess a certain amount of relief.

Only one 'g', but surprisingly, no! Biglerville is the home of Musselmans, which was the sworn enemy* of Knouse Foods, Dad's company. KF is based in Peach Glen, which really is just a spot where a couple roads come together, in the middle of a bunch of orchards. That's where the factory they toured is.

Musselmans was such a big thing to Biglerville that the high school sports teams were named the Canners. And we had a really strange mascot:

*seriously, we badmouthed Musselmans all my childhood. Then Knouse Foods bought out Musselmans, and has continued labelling product as Musselmans, in addition to Lucky Leaf, which is KF's brand.

Looking at the Canner Man now, it reminds me of....

No. Maybe I'm reading it wrong or just don't understand your shtick.
