June 9 is National Strawberry Rhubarb Pie Day!

After Ben Franklin introduced rhubarb seeds to the North American east coast in the early 1800s, rhubarb, dubbed “pieplant,” became a popular addition to pies in America. Sweet strawberries mixed with the tart flavor of rhubarb make for one delicious piece of pie – especially when you top it off with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on a hot June day.

National Strawberry Ice Cream Day

On January 15, we celebrate National Strawberry Ice Cream Day!

While the exact origin of strawberry ice cream is unknown, one of the first documented uses of the icy treat was in 1744 when Maryland Governor Thomas Bladen would serve it to guests and dignitaries visiting his home.

Strawberry ice cream was one of the first flavors ever invented, which adds up, seeing as early versions of ice cream were vanilla based with fruit chunks mixed in. Today, strawberry is the third most popular ice cream flavor among Americans, right behind vanilla and chocolate.

Celebrate National Strawberry Ice Cream Day by treating yourself to a few scoops of the delicious frozen dessert or having an ice cream social with your friends and family. Or, you can make your own strawberry ice cream by following this recipe.
