Rum Raisin Pie
Ahoy there mateys!!! Today at The Drunk Oven we are going to explore what the pirates of the 7 seas were eating behind their wives backs, Rum Raisin Pie. Ok all joking aside, I did try to do some research on this particular subject, and could find no corresponding evidence that pirates did once eat Rum Raisin Pie, so, for the sake of this post we will all assume that Rum Raisin Pie was a favorite treat of Captain Teach (A.K.A. Captain Blackbeard to most of us), and that this wonderful invention of a pie would remain irresistible to all Pirates, of all the seas, and to all of their lovely lady wenches.
There are several know types of Rum Raisin Pie, the most popular being the plain ol’ original type. However, depending on the voyage you may be on, and the company you keep, you may find yourself having one or more of the following, Apple Rum Raisin pie, Hot Buttered Rum Raisin Pie, Cinnamon Rum Raisin Pie, Old Fashioned (wait, no Rum in this one), Caramel Apple, or Rum Raisin Pumpkin Pie (Mmmmmm…..).
Alright, let’s put all of this pirate B.S. aside and get down to the good stuff starting with the original Rum Raisin Pie.
