All ingredients in Barton Creek Crossing fruit spreads are verified Non-GMO. We use USDA organic ingredients whenever possible. All of our spices are fresh harvested, ground, wholesome and organic (ummmm, the smell...ahhhh). And we cook with rainwater.
We get proposals from all manner of ingredient suppliers spouting off, "It looks like apples. It smells like apples. It tastes like apples. Your customers will never know the difference. And it will cost you less than buying wholesome, nutritious, apples grown and processed without additives and Frankenstein Science."
Well ... Kenny, Willi Ann and Abby say, "Thanks, but no thanks. We'll keep it simple and just use apples."
We're betting our fan base, you, can tell the difference.
