Cloudy Juice Is Best

Apples, Montmorency tart cherries, and Concord grapes offer a wealth of bioflavonoid nutrients including potent antioxidants like quercetin, anthocyanins, and proanthocyanidins. Concord grape juice ranked #1 in antioxidant benefit out of a thousand plus foods, and #1 out of thirteen juices tested. There are at least seventeen antioxidants in Montmorency cherries. Apples and apple juice have antioxidant capacity greater than a 1,500mg dose of vitamin C.

The Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture tells us cloudy apple juice contains four times more antioxidant polyphenols than clear apple juice. Their report shows us that genetically engineered derived (GMO) enzymes used to make clear juice also reduce antioxidants, flavor, and value. The clarifying enzymes are processing aids and so not required to be declared on labels. Most fruit juices are from Chinese origin, clarified concentrate and have other additives as well. These cheap shortcuts compromise quality, flavor, and nutrients; and usually pose questionable health effects.

The good news is that pure fruit juice of simple preparation can still be acquired today, although you do have to search through a lot of imitations to find it. It’s found with an Eden label on it, employing no diminishing shortcuts and with no additives. Organic Eden juices are just pure juice, simply pressed, lightly filtered, and bottled in amber glass to protect flavor, nutrients, and antioxidants from light damaging photo-oxidation. No refined sugars, GMO enzymes, or additives are ever used; they are just not needed. The Eden fruit is so good that it simply needs our protection from adulteration.

Organic-Antioxidant Rich

Studies consistently show organic fruit has up to 40% more antioxidants than chemically grown. The U.S. Department of Agriculture's yearly survey of pesticide residues found in fresh fruit and vegetables released in May 2011 prompted the Environmental Working Group to place chemically grown apples and grapes at the top of its “Dirty Dozen” list. Residues of forty–eight different pesticides were found in a sampling of apples. After washing in cold water for 10 seconds to mimic the way consumers were expected to handle fruit at home, the USDA found pesticide residues in 98% of the apples and 97% of the grapes.

Award Winning

Eden juices are organic fruit from U.S.A. family orchards and vineyards. After years of organic management these trees and vines produce some of the world's finest, tastiest, most nutritious fruits. Eden Foods offers three award winning opaque organic juices that provide much more complete nourishment and enjoyable flavor.

Organic Eden Apple Juice – old variety organic apples from family owned orchards on the shores of the Great Lakes, an ideal tree fruit area due to the seasonal lake effect. Given Alive magazine’s ‘Award of Excellence,’ the judges focused on the categories of flavor, nutrition, integrity of ingredients, processing, and promotion.

Organic Eden Concord Grape Juice – fresh pressed undiluted juice of Concord grapes from a twenty–two year organic family vineyard on New York's Keuka Finger Lake. A most refreshing, minimally tart, complexly sweet juice. It is rejuvenating and quite unlike any other Concord grape juice. Also a National Association of the Specialty Food Trade (NASFT) award winner.

Organic Eden Montmorency Tart Cherry Juice – 100% Montmorency tart cherries, or the ‘healing’ cherry, from family organic orchards on the shores of northern Lake Michigan, a deep crimson with a cherry pie bouquet. Not from concentrate. NASFT ‘Outstanding Beverage’ award winner. Richly rewarding to the senses and health.

Cherry Pie - Dried Montmorency

Serves 8 |  Prep. Time 1:30 |  Cook Time 0:25 min.

Udon with Olives

Ingredients
2 cups Eden Dried Montmorency Cherries
3 cups Eden Organic Apple Juice
1/4 teaspoon Eden Sea Salt
1/4 cup Eden Organic Kuzu Root Starch, dissolved in 5 T. cold water

Pie Crust
1 1/2 cups organic whole wheat pastry flour
1/4 teaspoon Eden Sea Salt
1/4 cup Eden Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/2 cup Edensoy Original, Edensoy Extra Original, or Edensoy Unsweetened

Directions
Place the cherries, apple juice and sea salt in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Turn off the flame and let the cherries soak for 1 hour.

While the cherries soak, prepare the pie crust by combining the flour and sea salt. Then combine the olive oil and soymilk. Mix the wet and dry ingredients and form into a ball of dough. Roll out on a lightly floured board or baking paper. Place the crust in a 9" pie plate, trim and crimp the edges of the dough with a wet fork or your fingers. Poke several holes in the bottom of the crust with a fork to allow steam to escape while baking. Preheat the oven to 350° and pre bake the crust for 5 minutes. Remove the crust but leave the oven on.

Place the cherries and juice in a saucepan, add the dissolved kuzu and cook over a high flame, stirring constantly to prevent lumping until thick, about 3 minutes. Pour the hot cherry filling into the pre baked crust. Place back in the oven and bake another 12 to 15 minutes until the crust is golden and crisp. Remove and allow to cool to room temperature, allowing the filling to gel before slicing.
