Delicious Ideas using Apple Store Products
For those times you need to make a quick and easy appetizer, try these simple cheese pairings:
Roll a log of goat cheese in some chopped pecans and sprinkle with Brendle Honey Farm honey. Serve with water crackers.
Spoon some Apple Store Blueberry Preserves, Wild Blueberry Spread, or Red Jalapeno Jelly over a block of cream cheese. The Blueberry Preserves or Spread would also work well with goat cheese. Serve with your favorite crackers.
Spoon some Apple Store Pear Preserves or Peach Preserves over a wedge of Brie cheese. Serve with your favorite crackers.
For a simple lunch or light dinner, mix Salsa Me Crazy Salsa with shredded chicken and serve over rice or in a wrap.
