Recently I was contacted by Musselman’s Apple Sauce to create a holiday side dish using their apple sauce.  To say the least, I pretty much inhaled the complimentary 2 jars they sent to me Delicious is an understatement and I had a fabulous time in my new kitchen devising a holiday recipe side dish.


And the best news is that the kind folks over at Musselman’s are offering a Musselman’s Gift Basket to one of my readers. Simply leave a comment on this post with your favorite ways to eat apple sauce and I will be choosing a winner tomorrow!  Good Luck!

  1. does with a spoon count? i always buy around 5-6 jars when i go grocery shopping! the checkers can never stop themselves from asking.

    okay, here we go…with pumpkin butter, mixed with yogurt, spread on top of toast with yogurt, on top of pancakes and waffles, and mixed into oatmeal.

  2. I love to use a tad bit of applesauce in my oatmeal…it really adds to the taste…I also use it for a baking subsitute as well.

  3. My favorite way to eat Musselman’s Applesauce is to fill a nice sized dessert dish with their applesauce and top it with an ice-cream scoop helping of cottage cheese. Simple, delicious, and healthy eating, not mention pretty! You can sprinkle with cinnamon and/or nutmeg if you like. We love it this way!

    1. That sounds delicious; thank you so very much for sharing this with me….I love applesauce! Have a great night and thank you again so very much for your comment! Best, Amie
