September 17th is Apple Dumpling Day! While the origin of the celebration of apple dumplings is obscure, apples and apple dumplings have been a staple of September for over a century. While not directly mentioning an apple dumpling day, the September 8, 1883 edition of the Delaware Ledger mentions the health benefits of apple dumplings in a “Culinary Conceits” article.
Little over a decade later, the September 6, 1894 edition of the Delaware Gazette and State Journal published several apple-based recipes, with a recipe for apple dumplings among them.
Though this blog is focused on apple dumplings as part of #AppleDumplingDay, please feel free to check out the papers cited for more, all-natural apple-based recipes.
