If you want desert after your Thanksgiving feast, most of us, probably think pie. Here at Ginger’s pies on Church Street in Jessup the phone is ringing off the hook and the oven hasn’t had a chance to cool. Ginger Adams is the owner of Ginger’s Pies “Everybody wants pie at Thanksgiving. We’ve got like 100 going to Bosak’s choice meats down on the bi-pass and then another 250 in house.”
“Some people pick up their pies and then they order some more because they ate it before thanksgiving.” Leo Grunza told us.
Ginger tells Eyewitness News she started making pies 30 years ago.
“I had three little babies at one time and I worked out of my house and then I opened here 20 years ago”
