Thank you for your delicious products. My daughter recently has developed a gluten allergy and your sauces have really helped with meals. Even just on rice-Maggie’s a happy lady! Love having you at our market. See you in a few weeks!

What a lovely addition you are to have with us in Westborough! Your products are so delicious. My husband and I have quickly realized one one of each was not enough; we are plowing through them. Apple and Pineapple are already all gone, and after tonight’s dinner I don’t think
There will be much left of the lemon.
Looking forward to seeing you again sooner rather than later!!!

West Stockbridge Farmers Market wouldn’t be a market without seeing you there. Just had to tell you Herman made Pork Medallions with the Apple Blush. They were sensational. A match made in heaven. I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoy your hard work.

Loved seeing you in Lenox this year! Not only are your sauces wonderful but your take home salads we bought for Tanglewood were perfect! We dipped and dunked our way through Bach with The Garlic Balsamic on french bread with cheeses and gorged ourselves on quinoa and borscht. Can’t wait to pick up more goodies next week! Thanks Amanda

Garlic Balsamic Chicken breast with crumbled blue cheese and tomatoes is the easiest and tastiest dinner, ever. Great for a weekday or even special occasion dinner. We just love it.

Your products made our housewarming very easy, and elegant. We served several breads, assorted cheeses and your condiments. Everything was a huge success, and devoured.  We’re obsessed with the Golden Sauce. If we had any left id wear it as perfume.

Were from Texas and we love BBQ. Your Golden Sauce is not like what we make down here, but we’re enjoying the hell out of it. My husband made brisket with it, and my sons been adding honey and tobasco sauce to it for sticky chicken drumsticks. We’ve plowed through 6 jars in a minute. We’re gna have to order some more!

Bought the Golden Sauce at Chocolate World. Remember me, im the guy that told you Id never eat it on my chicken wings? Well, my wife took your advice and tried it on our chicken wings. Had to eat my words and am a gentleman and can admit when he is wrong. They were pretty tasty ladies. Good work.

We love seeing you every year at Chocolate World in Long Island. We went through the case we purchased from you faster than usual – so we need to place another order. We have been eating the spiced pineapple in queso dip! It’s great with shredded pork or chicken or just alone. It’s been our go to entertainment appetizer and it’s SO easy and delicious. We also really love it in our black beans. Also, really easy. The curry just gives them a little something extra.

We were making a basket to take to Tanglewood and picked up three of your sauces for our Picnic at a Bakery in Housatonic, MA. There were only 4 of us and we managed to plow through three jars of your products with bread and cheese in a matter of hours. We came home with everything else we bought and we all agreed, best money spent in a long time. In case you’re wondering the Spiced Pineapple is to die for one a ham sandwich.

Recently we tasted one of your sauces at a dinner party we were at. We live in Manhattan and were told you were sold in the Berkshires, where we headed that weekend. We enjoyed your products so immensely we think we bought out your products when we came across them at the Wine Store. Each one is so great, we are loving every spoonful.

Wonderful to meet you in West Stockbridge. We took home several of your products and made several of the recipes on the website and were very pleased with how everything turned out and tasted. We have recommended these delicious sauces to several of our friends and wish you much success. Our Company devoured the Garlic Balsamic Drizzle Pasta salad except instead of a noodle we used angel hair and it was great and My daughter ate the Apple Blush on Peanut Butter and Ritz in one sitting. Great Stuff, and a lot will be coming back to the city with us.

I’m so pleased to have met your representative in Ashland this Summer. She is lovely and very knowledgable. She gave my wife and me many recipe ideas for the products that we purchased. We always buy things of this nature and get them home and we use them once, and they live what’s left of their life in the refrigerator until we throw them away because they’ve spoiled. However, these terrific products have shown their true colors and are really as easy to use, and cook with as the girl said. We are having no problems finding what to eat them with because we’re eating them with absolutely everything. I love the Garlic Balsamic Dressing and my wife has already gone through an entire jar of the Apple Apricot in two days. The other night she added the Lemon to some salmon and it was the best it’s tasted in a long time. Just wanted to share with you all. Thank You.

Your Lemon Ginger Sauce has really added some life back into my chicken and fish dinners. We are really enjoying how you’ve captured the essence of both flavors. We have recommended it to many.

Bought the Golden Sauce at the sad Amherst market on Wednesday. Disappointed you won’t be back but thank goodness for the internet because I don’t know that our household can go with the Sauce any longer! We need our fix!

We made pulled pork with the Golden Sauce. It was outstanding. I have a request to make it again for a little league dinner potluck. SO incredibly easy, and flavorful. I was so thrilled even the pickiest kids (which are mine of course) ate!

We picked up your flier for the “Golden Sauce” where we bought it. We Followed your quick directions for the “Golden Sauce Bruschetta” and it was Wonderful! We started with a whole loaf of bread and both of us consumed the entire batch of Bruschetta as well as the whole loaf of bread. We know this is going to become a favorite in this house.

Hello Ladies,

I bought 6 jars of your Garlic Sauce and 6 of your Golden Sauce at the Chocolate Show at the Aviation Museum at the beginning of the month, remember me? I have to tell you, I always go with my gut, and my family and friends have devoured your Sauces. I am down to 2 jars left of each. We’ve been eating them on absolutely everything. Last night my husband used the Garlic slathered all over his Ribeye. My sons have been drinking the Golden Sauce. Love them. I know we will be using them a lot this Summer so I am thrilled we can order from your site.

Hello,

You were all so lovely to speak with at the Long Island Chocolate Festival. My daughter and I bought the Lemon Ginger Twist and we are loving it. We have taken all your recommendations and have been so satisfied with our dinner, which is why I felt compelled to email you. Last night we made sauted carrots, broccoli, and red onion with the Lemon Ginger and served it beside some steamed chicken. For health reasons my diet has to be very bland. It was just enough of an accident to make the chicken not so boring, as chicken often goes. I am not the best cook, but that Lemon Ginger Twist has made me feel like a super star in the kitchen this week, and also like I am not missing out on something special. Thanks for being there and hope to order again soon!

Dear Tortured Orchard Recipe Guru (s)

I can’t get enough of your line. My daughter and I purchased one of each at Waylands last Winter Farmers Market At Russells and I wish I had bought ten of each. We are having so much fun with the flavors in your products that dinners have been very easy, because I am sure you know they GO with practically EVERYTHING!!! Last night my daughter made your “Golden Sauce Bruchetta” and it was wonderul. Not too hot, just the right acidity from the little tomatoes, and delicious with the shaved cheese and parsley. We also took your recommendation for the appetizer with the “Garlic Balsamic Pizza Margarita”, but instead of Naan bread we used Whole Wheat Pita Pockets. My sons didn’t save one bit of the Spicey Pineapple for anybody else in the house, they just ate it with Tostitoes, I am planning on using your “Idiot Proof” Salmon recipe some point this week, and my daughter has hidden the apple product for just the two of us. I hope these kind of emails brighten the work day, but surely I cannot be the only person to want to share my enthusiam with you regarding the quality of food you produce.

Sincerely,

The West’s

Hello,

I used your Sweet Apple Blush to stuff pork chops. I chopped up finely some toasted walnuts and added them as well. I put an additional tablespoon or two down in my pan with the chops and some water too, to create a looser version of your product. Dinner was delicious and my dinner guests were impressed.

Richmond, MA 02-22-2012

Were visiting the local Co-op in Great Barrington MA and your products name caught my eye. The label is awesome but what you’ve got INSIDE the jar is AMAZING. We bought the Spiced Pineapple and added it to goat cheese and spread it on our bread, then melted it with ham for the best, ooey, gooey ham sandwich. We came home with about 6 jars of your products. It may be something I can never live without again.

Hello Tortured Orchard,

Two of your products were given to me as a hostess gift a few weeks ago. The other night for dinner I opened up the Lemon Ginger Twist and followed your recipe for “Idiot Proof Lemon Ginger Salmon.” Most definitely “idiot proof” and my KIDS licked their plates. For dessert we sat around the table fighting for the jar of the Sweet Apple to spoon onto our chocolate cake slices but my daughter was spooning it directly into her mouth! I’ve got a post it note to order more soon!

We visited you at The Wilmington Farmer’s Market & ended up buying 3 of your sauces-wonderful sales people & amazing flavors! So far we have had Garlic Balsamic Drizzle baked chicken (yummy-even when made into chicken salad the next day) & Spiced Pineapple Zinger cream cheese spread on Rosemary Crackers-simply addictive! So glad we stopped by.

I bought a jar of this as well as the spiced pineapple sauce at the Wilmington Farmer’s Market last week. I opened the Garlic Balsamic Drizzle and cut up cucumbers to dip. Needless to say, my son went through 2 full cucumbers himself and the jar was just about empty in 10 mintues! Hope you guys come back this way..I need more! Absolutely delicious stuff!! Thank you!

“Hi There Tortured Orchard. We had ordered your products online on a friend from Massachusetts recommendation as an idea to try for our forth of July bbq crowd.  I have to say, I don’t know which we enjoyed most. We opened the Golden Sauce and we used it on our steak sandwiches and I think that jar of Garlic lasted ten minutes and the Spicey Pineapple raisin one maybe lasted ten minutes after that! I quickly hid the Soft Apple and Lemon for later use, but everything was delicious and you should be sold in New Jersey!”

“Hi there!
Don’t usually do this, because I have triplets and I have more things to do than there is time, BUT I bought your Garlic Balsamic Drizzle at the F.P. farmers market. Tonight I put it on chicken, stuck it in aluminum foil on the grill  and it was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!
Hopefully, I will be back next week to try the lemon ginger…in case I don’t have the time to get over there, I just wanted you to know you get 2 thumbs up- make that 10. 🙂 ”

“We bought a bottle of Tortured Orchard’s Golden Sauce at the farmer’s market in Springfield, MA last night. While there are many sauces on the market that are too rich and overly sweet, the Golden Sauce is perfectly balanced. The mustard sauce is lightly sweetened, tangy, with just enough heat and seasoning. Last night we used it for the first time, pouring it over roasted potatoes. The potatoes were hot enough to caramelize the sauce and give them a nice crust. I also mixed a little bit (maybe a tablespoon or two) into some vegan mayo that was used in our vegan chicken-patty sandwiches. Delicious. We’ll definitely be using this sauce a lot, both as a stand-alone dressing and as an addition to our already developed recipes. Thank you!”

”We created a new Panini in our house with your Apple Blush spread.

”My wife loves to post comments on the internet. I have to say that like many of the other commenters you have, this is my first comment ever written – I hope you feel honored. I like to eat plain things. No sauces, no condiments, no nothing. My wife made for dinner Monday Night Pork Loin stuffed with your Apple Blush product. I was informed that that’s what dinner was, and if I didn’t eat it I could have take out or eggs. Those are my usual “go-to options” when caught in a picky eater predicament. Strapped for options I gave in and I ate what was served. I really really enjoyed myself. I really enjoyed dinner. I really enjoyed the Apple Blush. Because of the positive response to the Apple Blush we have purchased the Garlic Drizzle. I am now looking forward to whatever is served with, mixed in or beside it. Be proud. Good work. You have a convert.”

”We recently were visiting friends at their home in Egremont, and could not find your store. However we did have the pleasure of tasting a few of your products when we visited a local bread bakery. Do you sell anywhere in Darien, CT? You should try the Darien Cheese Shop if you’re not already carried there.”

” Do you sell your products in Hoboken, NJ? They would be prefect for this area. I don’t mind buying them online but seriously they would be perfect for dinner parties, school events, soccor snacks etc. We seriously went through no joke, probably a case this winter when we were in The Berkshires skiing this winter. We were addicts. LOVE THEM. Even the ones I didn’t think I would like, I love. So good.”

” Your company is the first company I am ever writing a review for. After tasting your Hot Pineapple Zinger I felt compelled. We tried your products at a friends dinner party. She had whipped it into her cream cheese and had it out as a spread. I instantly thought that it was so delicious that my husband (who has type 2 diabtetes) would not be able to eat it because we watch his sugar, but when we read the back of your jar we couldn’t believe how low in sugar it is. It is so delicious, and we are so thankful that your products are healthful. We have since tried all of your products and have been more than pleased with all of them. Do you have any other products or just the four?”

” We were visiting our friends in the Berkshires and we went on a little local tour of sorts and came across a bakery that was showcasing your products with their breads. What a perfect pair. We literally stood there and sampled everything that was out for about a half an hour and of course when we left we had each purchased one of each kind of your sauces as well as about four loaves of bread! Your products made our mouths water and we also want to say kudos for providing your recipe suggestion sheet. There were ideas on there that we would never think of, and they were much appreciated.”

” As you probably know we order your products about once a month, and we love them. It’s disappointing to us that we can’t just get them at our Whole Foods. We have asked since you seem to meet all of their criteria, but perhaps it’s because you are not quite local enough? Regardless, we wanted to share a recipe we have been using. We have been dredging Tilapia in your Lemon Ginger Twist, THEN seasoned flour (with salt and pepper) and then lightly frying it. The flavor that your product imparts is sensational. We will continue to order until we get them here. We love them. ”

“These sauces are unbeleivable! they make any dinner so amazingly delicious and SO EASY! Every time I use these, I get so many compliments from my guests and MY FAMILY. I really love them all but my favorite is the Lemon, with the Pineapple in close second. But that is probably because I also use these on my toast – which I highly recommend- an everyday treat.

We recommend your products often and can’t wait to see what you ladies do next.”

“We made the recipe for Garlic Balsamic chicken wings this weekend. We were skeptical with how they would go over because we are so used to making the typical hot wings so we made a platter of each. Your recipe was a hit- our company didn’t even look at the hot wings. So I think the garlic wings will be the new thing for football.”

Ted Milky

”A few months ago We were given a 4-pack of your products. We travel a lot and they were recommended to us because they are “fast and easy” to use. This morning (believe it or not) is the first opportunity we have had to try them. After I came in from walking my pups through the leaves the feeling of fall came over me and I made a big batch of oatmeal and topped it with your Sweet Apple Blush and crushed walnuts. I have never tasted anything so good in my life. I swear, never. Fast and easy, true, but insanely decadent and delicious more so true. Even my wife who loathes oatmeal ate a heaping portion. Perhaps tomorrow I’ll try the same thing with the Lemon Ginger. Trust me you have a fan and we are very much looking forward to trying the rest of our gift set.”

After having tried the Pineapple Zinger and getting addicted to that (thank you very much) we have steadily been trying your other condiments. The versatility your products have is so refreshing. I love that there seem to be endless possibilities to what we can cook. The other night my Husband marinaded beef tenderloin pieces in the Lemon Ginger Twist and Grilled them with White rice. It was so delicious. Do you have a mailing list alerting your fans to new products? If so, could you add us to it?”

“It was lovely to meet you at your Russo’s demo. We have really enjoyed the Garlic Balsamic on practically everything in the house! We’ve cut up apples and used it as a dipping sauce as well as having used it on our lamb chops. Absolutely delicious. We quickly discovered that we must always have a backup jar handy.”

“The TO Products made my Dinner Party Easy. Literally, Just open the jar and change containers and people will think you are a God. We picked it up at the Butcher expecting to use them for marinade but once we got home and TASTED them we decided a different route.

We put a tsp. of the Sweet Apple Blush ontop of Cheddar Cheese Crustini and the Pineapple Zinger out with Naan. So easy and so delicious. Totally recommend these products.”

“I used every single Tortured Orchard product and loved them all… my favorite was the Lemon Ginger…I made a great chicken salad with this mix. I added grilled chicken, celery, onion,salt, pepper, paprika, andof course the Lemon Ginger Twist. Everyone absolutely loved the recipe. The Garlic Balsamic and Spiced Pinapple were used to marinade beef kabobs with veggies….placed on the grill and all the boys ate them up within minutes. The sweet apple blush I used to top some homemade poundcake. After the spread I placed freshcut apples on top. This was also a hit! Thanks so much for these fantastic products! I will definitely be purchasing more of your products in the near future.”

“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!”

“Let me first say that I have never written a website review. After tasting your products I had to. If I could sum up your line in three words my statement is -elegant. simple. fantastic. We love them. I couldn’t even tell you which I love most. I have found an excuse to eat at least one of your products on something at each meal. This morning I had multigrain toast with the Sweet Apple Blush. Perfect.”
