The description on the label of Mullen's Apple Sauce says that it tastes like apple pie without the crust. Having had my share of store-bought apple sauce in my life, I was a bit skeptical -- until I opened my first jar of Mullen's Apple Sauce and had a taste. Oh...my.... YUMMMMMM!! The label doesn't lie: Mullen's Apple Sauce really does taste like the mouthwatering filling of the best old-fashioned homemade apple pie you've ever had! The texture is just right, with big chunks of tender apples (I'm guessing more than 1 variety is used) in a thick sauce base of the perfect consistency (not gummy nor gritty nor runny), with just the right balance of natural sweetness (no sickly-sweet high fructose corn syrup here!) and pleasantly tart notes from a dash of lemon juice. The spices are subtle, without any single one standing out but instead blending in harmony to complement and enhance the natural flavor of the apples. Clearly, this all-natural apple sauce is made with the finest ingredients, and with a loving hand, just as in the olden days. And when you read Jim Mullen's story and taste his creation, you'll understand why I believe that Mullen's Apple Sauce really is the world's -- and not just Chicago's -- finest.
Mullen's Apple Sauce is delicious as a topping for pancakes and waffles, muffins, coffee cake, and vanilla ice cream (especially if you warm it up in your microwave before spooning over the ice cream). But don't confine this wholesome treat to the breakfast table or dessert tray: Mullen's Apple Sauce is also terrific as a condiment for all sorts of pork dishes, German food, roast turkey, grilled chicken and more. You can enjoy it chilled from the fridge as a no-work dessert, or mix it into a bowl of hot oatmeal or other hot cereal in the mornings, or simply grab a jar and a spoon and dig in. Once you try Mullen's Apple Sauce, we're sure you'll never go back to eating store brands again! Go ahead and try a jar (or more) while it's on sale at the Carolina Sauce Company, and support a good cause* while enjoying great food!
