When I find another passionate foodie on the internet who has used McCutcheon’s in some creative way it makes my day.

I came across the Richmond, VA based blogger CookinFanatic when she used McCutcheon’s Apple Butter BBQ Sauce to dish up some saucy […]
Fig, Mustard, and Champagne Vinaigrette Roast Chicken
This roast chicken is by far one of the more shocking, but surprisingly rewarding, combinations I have ventured to try.
Apricot-Mustard Pork Tenderloin
Pork and apricot? Could the combination work. I was assured it did work, and work very well. So, I took the dive and tried Apricot Preserves.

They are savory, hearty, and a great way to close a busy day without investing a ton of effort. And let me tell you, these are delicious, and easy, and I promise that they will become a family favorite.
Fig and Goat Cheese Grilled Sandwiches
My personal favorite of the three is the fig. It is sweet with just a touch of cinnamon. And with the crunch of the seeds it is just irresistible.
This recipe came from one of those familiar faces that wandered into our shop.
Pretzel Mustard Chicken
Healthier than deep fried, tastier than the old classic oven-fried chicken, this recipe is quick, easy, and delicious!
Spicy Bloody Mary
One of the best parts of my job is finding out how people use our products in their own kitchens.
Tomato Goat Cheese Crostini
If you are feeling adventurous in the kitchen, it tastes great prepared on a crostini. Here is how McCutcheon’s Apple Products likes to prepare it to munch on during those lazy, hazy days of late summer...
Strawberries with Quince Cream
A while ago I wrote about one of our more eyebrow-raising products, Quince Jelly. Quinces are not commonly known fruits. Rarely found in the super market or as an ingredient in your 30-minute cookbooks, the quince is an under-rated gem...
Black Raspberry Key Lime Bars
Then, as luck, or fate, or God would have it, a woman came into the factory store one day raving about our products and how she loved to cook with them. She told me how she only used our preserves for baking and cooking at her cafe...
Apricot Gingerbread Pancakes
Papa McCutcheon suggested this recipe out of the blue and they sounded so good I had breakfast for dinner. And, it was the best dinner I have had in a while…well since Thanksgiving.
Cherry Balsamic Baked Brie
I am a cheese fanatic. I know it’s unhealthy, but there is rarely a day I don’t find a reason to work it into my diet. I think it is a genetic predisposition.
Baking with Apple Cider
Wow! That is all I can say about this recipe I stumbled upon. I love my apple cider. But boy do I like my apple cider turned into a glaze and drizzled all over my favorite apple cider cakes, cookies, and muffins.
Mulled Fresh Cider
It honestly doesn’t get any easier to make mulled cider. Mulled cider is fresh apple cider warmed up with a spice blend. The spices typically include clove, cinnamon, and nutmeg and come in either a tea-bag form or as loose spices.
It’s late summer and after a long hot days work I do not want to come home and slave over a hot stove.
Peach Praline Monkey Bread
Nothing says spring and summer to me like fruit, especially peaches.
Jam and Bubbly: Champagne Spritzers
Tis the season to pop some bottles of champagne and celebrate the year past and the year to come.
Strawberry Sour Cream Pie
This pie is the result of some cooking genius. It is so light, cooling, and divine. A perfect, easy, summer treat. The sour cream puffs up until it is like a super light version of cheesecake.
Black and Blue Icebox Cakes
The star ingredient in this dessert is our Black & Blue Preserves, a mixed berry spread made out of a combination of blackberries and blueberries.
Apple Butter French Toast
This year it's all about the french toast in my house. My favorite way to make it is baked, slathered in apple butter and then drenched in pure, natural maple syrup.
Thumbprint cookies are little mounds of sweet sugar cookie, with a dollop of fruit preserves placed in a thumbprint indentation in the center of the cookie.
Pumpkin Butter Bread Pudding
It is time for all things pumpkin flavored to completely take over everyday lives and our everyday diets.

The Urbana Town Courier, a local publication based out of the small Maryland town, hailed McCutcheon’s in a recent article by a staff writer. McCutcheon’s gave the author of the article Sarah, a tour of McCutcheon city block sized factory in downtown Frederick...
Cider Braised Pork with Caramelized Onions
I snagged a jug of cider from the store the other day. It was the first day I could justify wearing a jacket and the air had that crisp smell to it that told me fall was settling in.
Peach Whiskey Barbecue Chicken
This is a marriage between two super powers of the culinary world, peach, and barbecue.
Banana Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
I can’t be the only one whose experienced the “all you want on a lazy Sunday morning is some banana bread, but the bananas you purchased the day before are still a few days away from even being completely yellow” situation...
Cherry Butter BBQ Sauce
Summer has been very memorable for Maryland this year. We have had the hot and muggies, the cool and clear skies, crashing thunderstorms that remind us mother-nature has a temper too
Strawberry Jalapeño BBQ Bake Beans
I knew a backyard barbecue appropriate dish was going to be the winner. I’m a big fan of fruity barbecue sauces so the Strawberry Jalapeno Sauce was an easy selection. This recipe is relatively simple to put together, but will make an excellent addition to any summer meal. I hope you enjoy!
Church Cook-off Winning Apple Dumplings Made With Vanilla Cream Soda
These are bundles of joy: easy, indulgent, and a tad mysterious. One of the McCutcheon families concocted this recipe for a church cook off. As the congregation sampled this recipe against all the others submitted by the Sunday church goers...
Blueberry Cinnamon Rolls
Blueberry Cinnamon Rolls are not like the super sweet breakfast rolls you are used to, which is surprising because the recipe reads almost the same.
I am bad at breakfast. In the morning all I can convince my groggy mind and body to do is make coffee and moan and groan as I get ready for work. Sure, my mother tried to instill in me the lesson that a healthy breakfast starts your day off right! She was amazing at breakfast. Pancakes, cinnamon buns, ten types of cereal, orange juice, eggs, and the crispiest bacon a kid could hope for were always supplied with the greatest of ease.
Mini Pie Pops
We all love food on a stick. Why wouldn’t you? No utensils are needed, it’s an entirely mobile method of serving food, and it’s just so darn cute...
Apricot Glazed Corned Beef
If you are in the mood to celebrate with semi-traditional Irish food get yourself a slab of corn beef and make this recipe.
Chocolate Raspberry Cake Balls
Let’s be honest, growing up in a business that makes jellies and preserves, you really come to develop a sweet tooth.
5 Minute Pumpkin Butter Coffee Cake
On those true autumn mornings, I love to wake up everyone in the house with the smell of Pumpkin Butter Coffee Cake baking fresh in the oven. Well, I like them to think I slaved over something baking in the oven. The truth is, it only takes 5-minutes and you do it in the microwave!
A line stretched towards the back of the factory store, as a customer regaled us all with a Pennsylvania Dutch recipe for what she called “Apple Crunch.”
Cranberry Orange Salmon
The other day, a lovely woman suggested using McCutcheon’s Cranberry Orange Marmalade as a salmon glaze. What could be more simple and satisfying?
