“Tortured Orchard is an unbelievable product. It’s so versatile, and for something so delicious, you’d think it would be high in calories, fat, sugar, but you could have knocked me over with a feather upon reading the nutritional stats! my roommate and i love the stuff so much that i bought her an entire case of it for her birthday–with ulterior motives to share, mind you–and she went through an entire jar of sweet apple blush within the first day just spreading it on toast!

Within the first week, we’d used at least 1/4 of the case. one night i made a chicken dish that was amazing. i simply dredged chicken tenderloin pieces in flour, salt, pepper, and hot pepper flakes, and sauteed them in a little olive oil mixed with more hot pepper flakes. i set them aside to cool. then i put a jar of the spiced pineapple zinger in a saute pan and heated to a simmer. i sliced the chicken into bite-sized pieces and tossed them in. the spiced pineapple zinger has large chunks of fruit in it that really round out the dish. after i had cooked the chicken in the sauce for about 5-10 minutes (depending on how big the pieces you use are), i added two tablespoons of the garlic balsamic drizzle and then cooked it for another 2-5 minutes. the combination of the spicy, fruity, and tart was absolutely phenomenal. i got rave reviews from both my roommate and our friend that happened to be lucky enough to be over when i was cooking!

I highly recommend this product to absolutely everybody. there’s a favorite flavor for everyone–and multiple for many–and they also make fantastic gifts (my roommate was beyond thrilled!). thanks for making such a phenomenal product!”
