How to keep your pies safe.

February 4, 2011

So, I recently stumbled on a listing on etsy for a pie safe.  This led me to explore more about them, and I completely fell in love.

My favorites aren’t the large, kitchen hutch- style ones, but the smaller, two- three pie cupboards.  If I own a pie safe I want it to be a strictly pie-only space.

Yellow Vintage Pie Safe

This one is my favorite, I love it’s worn in feel.  It makes me think about all the pies it’s held; pies for family get- togethers, holidays, and summer pies using up all those freshly picked berries.  But, if I can’t find an authentic pie safe I’m definitely adding it to Ian’s furniture projects.

Emile Henry Pie Dishes

I personally, don’t have pies baked fresh every week so I think that it would be a great place to store your favorite pie dishes for safe keeping.  I am currently coveting these Emile Henry Pie Dishes.  They are handmade and you can buy them at Williams- Sonoma.  They are one of the first things I registered for when Ian and I got engaged, and pretty much the only reason I set up a registry at that store in the first place.  I just can’t decide between the two colors shown.

But, when you do want to use the pie safe in its truest form, you might as well pick a pie where the colors complement each other, right?  And it doesn’t hurt when it’s delicious with tart citrus flavor and a hint of sweetness in the crust.

And if you’re in the need for pie inspiration, please read American Pie: Slices of Life (and Pie) From America’s Back Roads.  This book by Pascale Le Draoulec left me salivating and reminiscing.
