Stockyard Harvest Apple BBQ Sauce
Stockyard harvest apple BBQ sauce and pulled pork are a match made in heaven. The tart, yet sweet Washington apples used to make the sauce give a fruity tang. Molasses adds a treacle-like depth, and it’s all brought together with a warming blend of spices. The apple BBQ sauce is a great dip for sausages.
Washington, in the Pacific Northwest of America, takes a lot of BBQ inspiration from places like Kansas City or South Carolina. However, the north-western climate gives the region plenty of scope for standing out. Washington has an abundance of forests, so there’s lots of wood for smoking food. Cherry and apple are the most popular, giving a fruitier flavour than the hickory smoked flavours of Kansas. And it doesn’t stop at smoking – once harvest season comes around, tangy apple sauces for pork are everywhere.
In the 19th and early 20th centuries, stockyards were at the centre of America’s premium meat trade. American Stockyard’s small batch barbecue sauces and condiments aim to capture some of the nostalgia of the time, when all-natural ingredients reigned, and good meals were social occasions full of relaxed chatter and easy laughter. Each sauce is carefully crafted to reflect the unique regional flavours of historic stockyards across America.
