August is National Peach Month! Celebrate with Wholly Wholesome pie shells – the perfect compliment for one of our favorite fruits!
Before you take a #peach to the #beach, bake it first! @whollywholesome has the recipes for National Peach Month! http://bit.ly/2eifkG4
The facts about peaches are astounding! One large peach has 68 calories and provides 19% of an adult’s daily value for vitamin C, 11% of vitamin A and 10% of potassium. Peaches are part of the rose family. Think Georgia produces the most peaches? Actually, California wins the prize for the most of our fuzzy little friends.
So what do we do with a plethora of fresh peaches? Wholly Wholesome bakes them (and you can too)!

While the original apple pie recipe came from England, it rose in popularity in the states when the settlers colonized. Due to the abundance of fruit bearing trees and the ability to dry and store the fruit, apple pies rose in popularity in America.
During the 1920’s the phrase “as American as apple pie” rose in popularity when it was used to describe the home making abilities of President Herbert Hoover’s wife. During the 1940’s the phrase took off during World War II, when interviewed soldiers would often say they were willing to fight for “mom and apple pie.”
Apple pie has become a symbol of American patriotism and a beloved dessert of the American people. All these fun facts leave you hungry for more? Celebrate the day in the best fashion… with a good ‘ole Wholly Wholesome Apple Pie.
