Sugar Pie Recipe for Beltane
Sugar pie for Beltane/ incultureparent
Beltane, a Gaelic festival, celebrates the coming of summer. The name derives from the Gaelic word for May. The holiday is celebrated on May 1 in Ireland, Scotland and the Isle of Man. Foods eaten represent the fertility of the Earth–eggs, creme and berries are prevalent. Sugar pie is a “summer” pie and reminiscent of pecan pie filling, minus the nuts. It was a huge hit with my children! It would be fabulous with some macerated berries alongside.
