Good morning and happy Wednesday! The heat warning is still in effect, as daytime highs this week will range from the low to mid 30s C.

Fun fact: Apple pie comes from England

Apple pie is synonymous with America and is one of the country’s many unofficial symbols.

However, according to the Smithsonian, the first recorded recipe for apple pie was written in 1381 in England and included figs, raisins, pears and saffron in addition to apples. There are also Dutch apple pie recipes dating back to 1514.

And while we’re here, here’s another apple fact, courtesy of the Smithsonian: apples are native to Asia.

Not everyone got the message.
