Inspired by the past! We found these old jars of Balanced Apple Spread in our 1800’s era barn. These jars were most likely from the 1970’s, when the farmer was still stewarding the land. We lovingly recreated this product to honor the farmer and his family that came before us.
We hand-select and hand-harvest our wild apples and process them in small and slow batches. Because our apples have never been sprayed or manipulated by man, we proudly leave the skins on our apples. The Apple Spread is hand-blended with our Apple Molasses, bringing the flavor to the next level. Apple Molasses is listed as an endangered food by Slow Food Ark of Taste. We are proud to be one of only three makers of this product.
Our Apple Spread has many uses! Use Apple Spread in baked goods, paired with meats, and it is especially great in apple pies and crisps.
