Organic EDEN Grape Butter is made of 100% organic Concord grapes grown on a 20 year organic family vineyard on the shore of New York's Keuka Finger Lake. Glacier sculpted, the Finger Lakes are long, narrow lakes that run north to south in close proximity to each other like the fingers of a hand. Exceptional fruit is produced by this area's micro-climate and the seasonal lake effect. Hillside slopes provide good drainage of the sandy loam soil that produces these superlative grapes.
Made of 100% Concord grapes grown on a 20 year organic family vineyard on the shore of New York's Keuka Finger Lake. Whole grapes, seeds removed, are cooked into a purée and slowly kettle simmered to a 45 Brix grape butter. Over two pounds of fruit in each jar. Deep purple color, sweet flavor, and ambrosial aroma.
About the company
Eden Foods began in Ann Arbor in the late 1960s with friends sourcing natural food. Youth motivated by a study of a worldwide phenomenon centered upon macrobiotics: eating a diet of whole grain and seasonal local plant foods that are not nutrient depleted and without toxic chemical adulteration.
Natural foods were simply not available at the time, so they started the Eden food co-op to bring them in. Their initial $200 orders to Erewhon in Boston and Chico-san in California were well received and caused a local stir. This lead to co-op members traveling rural roads, knocking on doors looking for farmers to grow food using organic methods.
The Eden co-op grew into a natural food store offering whole grains, beans, soyfoods, sea vegetables, miso, cereals, vegetable oils, seed and nut butters, and the like. It expanded adding a cafeteria, bakery, and books, and became known as the Eden Deli. It was one of very few places in the U.S.A. where you could get natural, organic, macrobiotic food.
