Vermont Applesauce Giveaway

Carefully, and artfully packed in a burlap bag, look what just arrived – Vermont Village Applesauce! What a great presentation and what wonderful applesauce! Let me tell you more…

Vermont Village Applesauce began in 1977. They set forth to gather local apples and preserve them in the most wholesome way possible. Their (original unsweetened) applesauce has nothing added. No water, no sugar. It’s made purely from apples, and every bit of the apple. They leave the skins on and include the core. Andrew Lawrence, Director of Marketing, explains why: This process provides added nutrients and flavor that conventional mass produced applesauce can’t match.

I asked Andrew where Vermont Village Applesauce sources their apples. His response: Our primary sources of apples in Vermont are Sunrise Orchards and Ray Allen Orchards. This year has seen a bumper crop of apples here in Vermont and we are doing our best to collect as much fruit from our farmers as possible.

I gave my five year old a cup of unsweetened applesauce and asked him if it was tart. He replied: “No, not tart at all. SO sweet!” Because Vermont Village Applesauce uses the whole apple and apples picked at the peak of their season of course the applesauce is sweet! I like that this product is so pure, all natural, and organic.

The sharp and strong apples mixed with the sweet mix of berries creates a perfect balance in the Mixed Berry Applesauce. With the addition of the berries we called this “fruit sauce” rather than applesauce.

Maple Syrup Applesauce is so very Vermonty! They’ve added just a bit of pure Vermont maple syrup to sweeten this sauce. This was my favorite applesauce as it was not only a filling snack but it satisfied my sweet tooth as well.

Most of the Vermont Village products come in 4oz cups and 24oz jars. I am excited to share the following news from Vermont Village Applesauce: “We’re proud to announce the newest item in our family, Applesauce pouches. We’ve taken our two best selling flavors and put them in BPA free 4oz pouches.  We’re excited to help on-the-go families and athletes stay nourished with organic snacks. They’re available from a limited amount of retailers now, with a broader roll-out planned to happen before the Holidays begin.”

Here is one more important note from Andrew on the core values of Vermont Village Applesauce: “We exist only to provide healthy, delicious food, to sustain the local growers and the land they grow their fruit on.
