Tonight was my very first experience with my Adluh Gift Package.  I had zeroed in on the Sweet Potato Mix.  I was totally intrigued.  And what a fun dessert it made!

I wasn’t sure what it was going to do, but I had faith it was going to be good.  It was more than good.  It was excellent!

I followed the directions exactly, using McIntosh apples, sugar, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, ginger, sugar, butter, and a sprinkling of flour for the filling.

Sweet Potato Apple Cobbler with Pecans

  • 1 pound Adluh Sweet Potato Mix
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 16-32 oz fresh, frozen, or canned apples or apple pie filling
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 stick melted butter

Mix the sweet potato mix, milk, pecans, and brown sugar until the thickness of pancake batter.  pour the apples/filling into an 8×10 or 9×13 baking pan.  Pour the sweet potato mix over the apples.  Bake at 400° conventional (350° convection) or 40 minutes or until golden brown.  Take out and pour melted butter on top.  Let butter soak in and then sprinkle with chopped pecans.

And that’s just what I did!

The flavor of the Sweet Potato Mix is vaguely ginger-breadish.  Really, really good.  It just went perfect with the apples.  I could see it topping a pear cobbler, as well.  I could also see it with any one of the sheet of recipes I received with my gift box.  Really, really good.

And I really liked the cake-like cobbler topping as opposed to the drop biscuits I usually make.  My mom used to make a cobbler like this although it was of the white-flour variety.  I haven’t had one like this in years.  It really did evoke a simpler place and time for me.  I guess this is what the good folks at Adluh mean when they talk about “Same Today, Same Always.”  You really can make grandma’s biscuits.  And your grand-kids will be able to make yours.

Quality has been the one feature that has allowed this plant to flourish while others have closed. As in 1900, stones are still used today to produce the specialty grits items. Without this emphasis on “Same Today, Same Always” quality, the company could never have survived the shift in consumption from local to regional to national brands over the last 100 years. Generations of customers know that they can always trust their prized recipes to come out right using Adluh products.

Really, really good.
