NATIONAL APPLE BETTY DAY
This American food holiday is celebrated each year on October 5.
Similar to what is known as apple crisp, crumble or cobbler, the American variant known as the Betty or Brown Betty dates from colonial times. Apple Betty (sometimes called Apple Brown Betty) is made with crumbs, apples, cinnamon, sugar and sometimes other ingredients.
Apple Brown Betty was one of the favorite desserts of Ronald and Nancy Reagan in the White House.
