Organic Apple Sauce
In addition to grabbing some inexpensive J.L. Jardine’s Peach Salsa on my recent trip to Marshall’s, I found Organic Apple Sauce with Cinnamon by Grandma Hoerner’s. I bought a jar, but I was a little leary, only because I’m picky about apple sauce – I don’t care for unsweetened, though I’ll eat it, but I don’t like it oversweetened or overspiced, either.
I like having apple sauce in the house because I’m allergic to many fruits when they’re raw/uncooked (weird, but true) so I’m always trying to sneak more fruit into my diet in other ways. Apple sauce counts as a serving of fruit (though I know it’s not as nutritious as the real deal), and since the apples are cooked, I’m good to go!
This is one of the best apple sauces that I’ve tried, and it’s organic, which is great, too (apples are thin-skinned so they easily absorb pesticides). It has just enough cinnamon to add a nice flavor but not become overpowering. It also has just the right amount of sugar. And, Grandma Hoerner’s apple sauce has a great texture, too – pureed, of course, but it seems to be more coarsely pureed than most apple sauces. Even the color is more appealing than most jarred apple sauces. T.J. Maxx and Marshall’s are supposed to be carrying more of the company’s products, including preserves, so I’ll be buying more apple sauce and maybe trying some of their other treats, too!
