Apple Rum Sauce Gets National Recognition!

The past month has been a big one for not only our Apple Rum BBQ Sauce but Honey Bourbon as well. Every time I get the results I have to read them several times to make sure I'm reading it right!       Last year our sponsorship of Creekside Cookers was very successful with several including Buda Texas Weiner Dog Races Cookoff 3rd place out of 60 teams, and New Braunfels Texas Sheriff's Posse BBQ Cookoff Reserve Grand Champion.      They use our Apple Rum Sauce on ribs and the Honey Bourbon on chicken at these events. The floods in 2015 in Texas did cause a disruption of the cookoff schedule for the guys but even with that the results were awesome.   ...

Game Day Appetizers

Here in New England we are usually very lucky to be still in the playoffs thanks to the incredible talents of Tom Brady, Gronk and so many others. And  what's a football game without game day goodies. Sauces make short work of throwing a party and make you look like the hostess with the mostest!! Using sauces for dipping is a great way to offer variety. Why not set up a dipping sauce bar with 3 or 4 of your favorite sauces with several items for dipping such as chicken nuggets, baked potato wedges, jalapeno poppers, cheese sticks, or popcorn chicken.  Good choices for dipping include Apple Rum Sauce, Honey Bourbon or Cherry Habanero. Who doesn't love meatballs? Try something...

Peach Vodka Sauce- Perfect For The Holidays

Shrimp is a staple at holiday parties and the standard cocktail sauce is great, you know the one, chilli sauce and horseradish. Late at night after guests have gone to their cabins is when I do my best experimenting and the invention of Peach Vodka Sauce is no exception. I was thinking about shrimp.

There are so many other ways...

Apple Rum Sauce Rocks Chicken With Bacon

Looking for an easy appetizer to wow guests at parties? Chicken wrapped bacon with our Apple Rum BBQ Sauce is so easy and YUMMY!! These chicken bites are great to make ahead and just pop in the broiler when guests arrive.  I use 2 boneless skinless chicken breast and 1 pound of regular hardwood smoked bacon for 12 people. Cut the chicken in to cubes about 1.5 inches in size. Cut the bacon into thirds while it's still in the package. Wrap each piece of chicken with a strip of bacon and secure with a toothpick. I then put the chicken bites in a shallow dish and pour on our Apple Rum Sauce. If you are making these the day...
