Pie season is upon us and we are extremely excited about it! There is nothing better than coming downstairs to the smell of a delicious fall pie in the oven. Whether you’re a blueberry lover or passionate about pumpkin, there are always going to be some leftovers (maybe not always…) But when there are, you need to be careful about how you store them in your refrigerator.
These pies contain eggs in their filling, so refrigeration is a must. If you’re trying to knock the preparation out of the way, you can do it during the week and store the pie in the fridge for four days before serving. Be sure to wrap the pie in aluminum foil and set the refrigerator temperature to right around 38°F.
Your blueberry, cherry, raspberry and any other kind of berry pies fall into this category. After they’re baked, they can remain covered at room temperature for up to two days. After that, move them to the refrigerator for another two days of storage. If you can’t finish them in that four day window, then maybe you need a new recipe!
Cream/ Custard Pies
These pies are simple and easy to make and they always seem to be a fan favorite. They tend to be a little lighter on the stomach than traditional pie and people appreciate that after a long meal. As for storage, they can’t be frozen, but they can be covered in the fridge for up to four days. Oh, and a little tip. Don’t put the whip cream on top until you’re ready to serve!
If you follow these guidelines, your pies should be even tastier the next day. The only thing that can derail you is a faulty refrigerator but those are a thing of the past. Just call Speedy Refrigerator Service and we’ll be there in one hour or less! If you throw in some pie, our guys might even make it a half hour.
