A tangy sweet spread that makes healthy eating an easy pleasure with its versatility. No refined sugar or anything else ever added
The apples in EDEN Organic Apple Butter are organically grown on family owned orchards on the shores of the Great Lakes, one of the best tree fruit growing locations in the world due to the seasonal lake effect. After years of organic management, the healthy trees and soil in these beautiful orchards produce the most delicious apples we have ever tasted.
Over four pounds of apples go into every jar of EDEN Organic Apple Butter. A carefully selected blend of apples are hand sorted, washed, peeled, cored and chopped. A small amount of our organic apple juice concentrate is added to the apples that are patiently steam jacketed kettle simmered until perfect. When finished the apple butter is packed in glass jars.
EDEN Organic Apple Butter is a tangy, sweet spread. A jar in your refrigerator makes it easy and fun to eat healthy food. Dollop it on oatmeal and cereal; spread it on toast, pancakes and waffles; use in batter for moist, flavorful baked goods. Use it instead of butter, jam, jelly or frosting. It is fat free and sodium free with no refined sugars.
Scientific research has found that apples and apple juice contain a wealth of phytonutrients that have been found beneficial to health. A study conducted at Rochester, Minnesota's Mayo Clinic reported finding the "powerful antioxidant, quercetin, in apples and apple juice." Quercetin is one of the more potent antioxidants in apples. In the journal 'Nature', 2000, researchers at Cornell University reported that apple components had more antioxidant capability than a 1,500-milligram mega dose of vitamin C. "Scientists are interested in isolating single components, such as vitamin C, vitamin E, or beta carotene to see if they exhibit antioxidant benefits", says Dr. Rui Hai Liu at Cornell. "It turns out that none of those work alone. It's the combination of flavonoids and polyphenols [antioxidant phytonutrients found in apples] doing the work."
It's good to be choosy when picking apples. The USDA has identified 35 insecticides, fungicides, and weed killers sprayed on apples, even though the Environmental Protection Agency considers them hazardous. Tests by the Environmental Working Group show that these chemicals do show up in supermarkets, so it is especially important to choose an organic apple you can trust. EDEN is a wise choice.
