HUMBLE PIE

Humble pie was a 17th century English dish made with the heart, liver, kidneys, etc. of a deer, baked in a crust with apples, currants and spices.

 In Old English, 'numble' referred to edible animal organs (liver, kidneys, heart, etc). Originating in the 17th century, a 'numble pie' evolved into 'umble pie' and finally 'humble pie'.
