Today in Food History  – JULY 5th

  • National Apple Turnover Day
  • 1794 – Sylvester Graham was born in West Suffield, Connecticut. He advocated vegetarianism, and the use of coarse ground whole wheat (graham) flour. He also invented the Graham cracker in 1829.

According to Wikipedia:

A turnover is a type of pastry. It is made by placing filling on a piece of dough, folding the dough over the filling, and sealing it. Turnovers can either don the guises of sweet or savory. They are often considered a portable meal or dessert.

As a general rule, sweet turnovers to have a fruit filling and made with a choice of shortcrust pastrypuff pastry dough, phyllo, or any other quick dough – like refrigerated biscuits or crescent-style rolls.  Savory turnovers generally contain meat and/or vegetables and can be made with any sort of dough, though a kneaded yeast dough seems to be the most common in Western cuisines. They are usually baked, but may be fried.
