I have been wanting to work with Musselman’s for some time now. I had seen their products in stores and online for a year or so and I thought they looked good. However, I had never tried them. So, I was very excited to be offered the opportunity to try some of their apple sauces. Now, this may seem like an odd time to try Musselman’s since we usually think of apples in the fall. However, it is now officially spring. That means that the Peach Glen orchard growers for Musselman’s are finished with winter pruning and are preparing for apple blossoms. Yay! Doesn’t that sound like an exciting time for growers and Musselman’s?
This is also the perfect time to go outside again with family and friends. Winter had most of indoors to avoid the cold. Now that it’s warmer, we can go on those hikes or just relax. What makes a good outing a great one is food. Haha! Using Musselman’s, you can make some perfectly portable snacks for your spring outing. Think things like Chewy Fruit Bars, Easy Low Fat Granola, and Grandma’s Spice Cookies. I made some of the cookies with my boyfriend using their original apple sauce. We also opted to add some raisins. They didn’t look overly flashy or anything. However, they tasted delicious!
We made them on Friday night and they were gone Sunday morning. The two of us and his parents snacked on them all weekend. They were great for dessert, a snack, and breakfast (in my opinion). They were a bit cakier in texture than I was thinking they would be. Also, I made the mistake of making them too big in the first batch. Haha! These cookies definitely spread out while baking. Nonetheless, we ate them all and they tasted great!
I also tried some of their cinnamon apple sauce. I love cinnamon in my apple sauce. I think they go perfectly together. This apple sauce was a little chunkier than some of the other apple sauces I’ve tried. However, I think that’s great because you can literally see the proof that they use apples in the apple sauce. It has a more earthy feel to it that way. Plus, it tastes really good. Now, one lucky reader will get to try some apple sauce from Musselman’s.
