National Apple Strudel Day

Apple strudel, a type of layered pastry filled with apples, is celebrated today. Strudels are usually sweet, but they can be savory as well. Their name comes from the German word "strudel," which means "whirlpool" or "eddy." The oldest recipe for them dates to 1696, and they originated from similar pastries from the Middle East and Byzantine Empire. During the eighteenth century, they became popular in the Habsburg Empire. They are associated with Austrian cuisine, and common in all areas that once comprised Austria-Hungary.

How to Observe National Apple Strudel Day

Celebrate the day by eating apple strudel. Pick it up at a store, have it for dessert at a restaurant, or make your own.
