My Apple Pie In-A-Jar Recap & A Sweet Thank You!
… to THIS!
Phew! Is it over? Already? I feel like it happened so fast! It was not an easy task and I was brought back to memories of my “Batch Up Challenge” on Recipe to Riches… have I learned anything since then? Yes! But was it still a challenge? YES!
Just to quickly recap, but February is Apple Month! It’s an initiative to support our local Okanagan farmers and growers during a slower time of year. Therefore together with BC Tree Fruits, I have recreated and reproduced an apple version of my Canadian Pie In-A-Jar that was featured on Food Network Canada’s Recipe to Riches.
Not only that, but I was pleased to have Nature’s Path support my event once again by donating their NEW “Love Crunch” Premium Granola Apple Crumble! Free samples of the granola were given throughout the event and bags were available for purchase by donation with 100% proceeds going to Vancouver Food Bank! Apples and apple recipes were also provided by BC Tree Fruits.
Thank you so much to everyone who came out (even though it rained) and joined me at The Long Table at the Salty Tongue Cafe. This was my first ever public Apple Pie In-A-Jar sampling and it meant so much to have you support it even if it was just spreading the word or sending your wishes. For those that came down, it was so lovely to meet you in person and I was honoured to have you there!
A big shout out to the Salty Tongue Cafe staff, generous sponsors, friends and volunteers for being so helpful… without you I would have cried in a jar or baked in the kitchen wearing heels… actually never mind, I still did that second part.
@woosang_lee – “Apple pie in a jar by @followmefoodie. Very delicious & thought it was an interesting take on a classic dessert.”
CityFood Magazine @CityFood_mag – “
@followmefoodie More in Pie-In-A-Jar than I expected. Jar looks small [sample sized jar], but feel like you’re eating whole slice of pie! Great idea, Mijune.”

@GregariousGagan – “ @followmefoodie Thank you for hosting a sampling event for the pie in a jar! Love the cardamom flavour! Reminded me of India.”
@ryanchote – “Omgawd @followmefoodie‘s Pie-In-A-Jar is quite possibly the best tasting pie ever!”

The response was overwhelming and thanks for everyone’s support we ended up selling out of Apple Pie In-A-Jars in an hour! And equally as exciting was the requests for another tasting! So do I plan on having another tasting? Hopefully, but only if YOU want one! So let me know by leaving me a comment or sending me a tweet (@followmefoodie #FMFPie) so I can keep you updated on future tastings!
