This month's issue of Our State Magazine featured the 100 must-eat foods in North Carolina's 100 counties, selecting one food from each county that best showcases the county's character. If you've ever tasted Mrs. Picky Fanicky's Apple Pie MmmMarmalade, it'll come as no surprise when I tell you that this all-natural, blue-ribbon-winning apple marmalade was selected as THE must-eat food from Harnett County, NC!
Mrs. Picky Fanicky uses crisp mountain apples, a splash of orange juice and lemon juice, and a secret blend of spices to create a decadently sweet, rich, old-fashioned marmalade that tastes like Grandma's homemade apple pie filling. Spoon it over ice cream, pancakes, French toast and biscuits, or stir it into oatmeal and bread pudding, and serve it with pork chops or roast turkey as a sweet counterpoint. Or do what I do when I crave a sweet but healthy dessert: Grab a spoon, open up a jar and dig in!
Mrs. Picky Fanicky's Apple Pie MmmMarmalade is currently on sale at the Carolina Sauce Company, so now's the time to try the best of Harnett County!
