WIN-It-Wednesday: Pastor Chuck Orchards Apple Specialties

When I was younger my Mom served applesauce all the time. We would have it for breakfast on top of oatmeal, at lunch for a side with our sandwiches, and of course served with pork chops … which had me and my sisters imitating Peter Brady, a la Humphrey Bogart, by repeating “porkchopppps and apple sauuuuuce” continuously throughout the dinner hour.

Oh the memories…. (and the patience my Mom and Dad must have had!)

I hadn’t thought much about apple sauce until I was recently introduced to Pastor Chuck’s Organic Apple Specialties. They makes delicious products made from Maine-grown, organic apples. All of their products have no preservatives or pesticides. Plus they are gluten and allergen free.

Pastor Chuck’s products are not just perfect for kids, but also for all of us adults that are looking for healthy and organic choices.

That is why I was thrilled when Pastor Chuck’s Organic Maine Apple Specialties decided to be the sponsor of BeFreeForMe’s WIN-It-Wednesday this week. Two (Yes 2!) LUCKY BeFreeForMe members will win a gift pack of Pastor Chuck products!

The first gift packs includes three jars of the Apple Butters, which are fantastic non-dairy alternatives to spread over gluten-free bagels, instead of butter or jam. The second gift pack includes a jar of the apple butter, a jar of the applesauce, and a jar of the Apple Salsa (Yes Salsa!) which is so versatile. I love to use the apple salsa over grilled meats, with baked brie, and as a dip for gluten-free crackers and fruits.  It is uniquely delicious!

How can you win?

Reply to this blog and tell us your favorite TV show when you were a kid and your favorite character in that show (Me? I loved the Brady Bunch, and my favorites were Peter and Jan… since they were both middle children like me!)

Good Luck, Pork Chops and Apple Sauce forever… and as always,

Be Free!

    When I was a girl back in the late 60’s there was a tv western called “Lancer”.
    I had the hugest crush on Johnny Lancer played by James Stacy.
    One night, my bestfriend Mary and I went with my parents to look
    at an RV. My father was “taking to long” talking and Mary and I
    knew it was close to our showtime! So we decided to head on out back for home by foot.
    Needless to say, my parents got in the car found us and we both
    got the big scolding and were grounded from tv that night!
    I never forgot that obviously, and ended up naming
    one of my sons’ Lance and often call him Lancer.
