Pies St George | holiday time

In case the date is sneaking up on you as it seems to be for many, Thanksgiving is right around the corner. And you know what that means: It’s time for pies St George.

Even if you like to cook Thanksgiving dinner, it’s likely you’ll soon be up to your eyeballs in turkey, stuffing and mashed potato prep. So why not give yourself on one aspect of the traditional meal and order up dessert from one of the several places offering pies St George.

Why pie?

Whether it is pumpkin, apple, cherry or cream, there’s a good chance your Thanksgiving meal is going to end with one of these traditional desserts. But why?

Evidently the history of pies goes back centuries; back to a time before they were even filled with sweets. Because as you may know, pies were filled with meat, up until the 14th century, according to a pie history on Marie Callender’s web site. Even then, sweet pies didn’t gain additional popularity until the 16th century when the price of sugar decreased. Before then there were a lot of fish pies — in order to keep in line with the Church of England’s decree to have certain meat-less days.

With sugar more readily available pies made with a candied orange peel, apples flavored with saffron, as well as pear pie.

As for Thanksgiving and its traditional pumpkin pie, well, that seems to have become more commonplace as of the late 1700s.

As for pumpkin being the most traditional Thanksgiving pie — and the oldest one — it isn’t alone in the category of favorites. Pecan pie has been part of many a Thanksgiving meal since the 1920s. Now there’s cherry, cream-filled, mince meat, rhubarb, peach, apple, raspberry… the list goes on and on.

Veyo Pies

While located just outside the St. George area, Veyo pies is definitely considered an integral part of the pies St George landscape.

It all started more than 30 years ago when Evelyn Daniels owned the Veyo Mercantile with her husband, Larry. Evelyn started making pies in order to increase traffic to the store, according to the Veyo Pies web site. It worked so well it was soon too much for one person to handle. She brought in Evalyn Yaw to handle the pies St George portion of the business. Evalyn Yaw brought in her own recipes.

As time went on, the pies portion passed to others, but always someone who was trained in the important art of making the best pies St George.

So even when the Veyo Merc closed its doors in 2008, Devaney Lomenick, who trained with Evalyn Yaw, kept the pies St George portion going.
