This is the time of year when pies fly off shelves all across the East End. From Tate’s to Briermere, fans of the delectable, fruit-filled treats can’t get enough.

Pie lovers of all shapes and sizes will want to be at the next “Fridays on the Porch” presentation which will be offered by the Sag Harbor Historical Society on Friday, August 9, at 5 p.m. That’s when Reverend Karen Campbell of Christ Episcopal Church in Sag Harbor will present “The History of Pyes,” a yummy hands-on, rolling pin worthy experience.

Interestingly enough, according to Webster’s dictionary, there was no standard spelling of the word “pie” until 1830. However you spell it, they are delicious.

Each participant at Rev. Campbell’s presentation will leave with a small pie crust or tartlet, in a tiny pie plate, to bake at home. If you have a favorite fruit in season (apple, pear, peach) bring two large fruits or a cup of berries, to fill your pie crust.

Also, come armed with questions about pies. From fun facts about the evolution of pies to Broadway lyrics about pies, and perhaps even some insight into how the idiom “pie in the sky” came to be, no pie-themed subject is out of bounds at this event.

“I’ll talk about the colonial experience with pies,” promised Rev. Campbell. “And for fun, we’ll hear from the musical ‘Sweeny Todd’ on how to create a variety of pies from unusual sources!”

Hopefully, no one will be taking that flavor home with them at the end of the evening.

“Fridays on the Porch” take place at the Annie Cooper Boyd House, 176 Main Street, Sag Harbor. Admission is a $20 donation and complimentary wine, beer and refreshments are served.

The final porch talk on Friday, August 23, at 5 p.m. is an “Antiques Show and Tell” with Randy Kolhoff, owner of Black Swan Antiques.
