We have been fans of Little Apple treats since we first tried Joanne’s award-winning apple cider vinegar, produced using apples that are grown and pressed at her orchard in Sebastopol, California.
Since starting out with that first batch of vinegar, Little Apple Treats has produced granola, shrubs, caramels and other treats that are sold throughout the Bay Area and online.
We've wanted to make a spiced caramel with Joanne for a long time. She had the sour apple flavor in mind, and we complemented it with our favorite spice pairings.
After much taste testing (we know, hard job), the winning caramel is made with a rich Gravenstein apple syrup, Desert Hibiscus and our Ground Black Lime and Cinnamon Tree Leaves. This stellar combination made for a soft, apple-sweetened caramel with an alluring sour bite. These won't last long in your house.

ABOUT THE MAKER:
Joanne Krueger founded Little Apple Treats to create handcrafted, delicious foods and support small-scale agriculture in western Sonoma County, California. At her orchard in Sebastopol, she turns heirloom apples into exquisite products, including apple cider, vinegars, shrubs, granola and many flavors of caramels.
Her love affair with apples began, somewhat accidentally, in 1999 when she and her husband, Dan, became apple growers. They were running a flower nursery out of several backyards in Berkeley and decided it was time to expand the business. They left the city behind and found a little house in Sebastopol, which was in the middle of a big apple orchard... which is how they became apple farmers.
Ten years after moving to their apple farm, they juiced some of our apples for the first time using an old wooden apple press and aged that juice in barrels. After a year, their aged juice had fermented into startlingly delicious farm-direct apple cider vinegar. Joanne and Dan were hooked, and that first batch sparked a deeper curiosity — “What else can we make from our apples?” The answer, it turns out, is “a lot!
