A new limited edition flavour from gourmet pie makers, I Love Pies, marks a first for supermarket pies. Their Free Range Pork, Apple and Kumara variant is the only pie made with free range pork available in supermarkets.
“We love coming up with our annual limited edition pies – it’s a really fun process that the whole team at I Love Pies gets involved in,” says co-founder and product developer Jessie Stanley.
“After the highly successful launch of our limited edition steak and ale pie last year, made with APA from local craft brewery Tuatara, we wanted to create something that would appeal to kiwi taste buds in a similar way, but also introduce something new. A pie that showcases the classic flavour combination of tender pork, apple and kumara was the result.”
A non-negotiable for I Love Pies was using only free range pork.
“Using top quality New Zealand ingredients is one of the core values we have built our brand on. So we worked with free range pork supplier Harmony to ensure that the pork we use comes from happy pigs that have had a good life. We believe this enhances the flavour and texture of the pork meat in the pie.”
Harmony Free Range Pork sources its meat from a select group of farms where animals are grass fed – no cages, no pens – only open paddocks.
Granny Smith apples and kumara give the pie a lovely sweet background flavour. The filling also has a hint of sage in the delicate sauce.
The pie comes in two sizes – a large family-sized pie perfect for busy households onthe-go, and a smaller standard pie for people to enjoy all to themselves.
The pies feature the sour cream and butter pastry I Love Pies is famous for. No I Love Pies product has any nasties like palm oil, MSG, artificial colours, flavours or preservatives.
The limited edition Pork, Apple and Kumara pie will be available in supermarkets across New Zealand including New World, Pak ‘n Save and Countdown, in the chiller section, for a limited time.
We’ve included a delicious chopped salad from Taylors Farm for you to enjoy with the new pie. Their salad kits are washed and ready for you to enjoy with their yummy toppings and dressing.
RRP $18.95 for the family pie, and $4.99 for the small pie.
