EDEN Organic Wild Blueberries are from low bush, wild grown blueberry fields, called 'barrens', in northern Quebec, Canada that have been organically managed since 1996. The area was once heavily forested, but the forest was long ago cut down. A few years after it was cleared, the area was full of native wild blueberries. In August the blueberries are handpicked, washed and cleaned to remove any leaves and twigs, sorted and quick frozen. When ready for drying, the blueberries are thawed and then infused by immersing them in organic apple juice concentrate that is circulated over them until they reach just the right sweetness or 'Brix'. The infused blueberries are then rinsed, low heat dried, and coated very lightly with a mist of organic sunflower oil to prevent clumping. The low heat drying is warm air circulated until they are dry enough to become shelf stable, requiring no refrigeration. It takes 4 pounds of fresh blueberries to produce 1 pound of dried.
EDEN Organic Wild Blueberries are a delicious and nutritious food, packaged in convenient re-sealable pouches that lock in their flavor, freshness, and valuable nutrients.
