Knouse Foodservice Introduces New Musselman’s® Heat N Serve Apples

Knouse Foods, a leading fruit grower cooperative, launches its new Musselman’s Heat N Serve Spiced Homestyle Country Apples. Now available in a #10 can for back-of-house efficiency, these cooked cinnamon apple slices mixed in a buttery sauce make a great addition to any daypart. From breakfast to dessert, Knouse Foodservice offers multiple ideas for easy, profit-boosting menu enhancements. Simply heat and serve to save time, reduce labor and eliminate waste. 

Apple is one of 2014’s top flavors and was prominently featured at this year’s National Restaurant Show.¹ On trend and easy to use, Musselman’s Heat N Serve Apples are profitable as well, at just 29 cents per serving with a suggested menu value of $2.29. Chefs and operators will appreciate the versatility of this classic American flavor, as well as the reduced need for labor.

Heat N Serve Apples taste great on their own, making a perfect side dish. Serve warm in a skillet topped with vanilla ice cream for a delicious, crowd-pleasing dessert, or use as a topping for pancakes, waffles, or French toast at breakfast. For a unique twist of spicy and sweet, serve apples in a fajita dish with chipotle pecans, ice cream and caramel sauce.

Bob Fisher, Vice President of Marketing at Knouse, says, “Our quality products are designed to make things easy for operators to boost profits and consistently deliver a delicious meal. Apples are a perennial American favorite. Whether as a side, a topping, or a dessert, our new Musselman’s Heat N Serve Spiced Homestyle Country Apples are a great way to enhance the flavor of any menu.”
