Filsinger’sis a Local Canadian Company
Located in Ayton, Ontario, Filsinger’s Organic Food & Orchards is just a couple hours outside most of our Goodness Me! locations. Local and Canadian, just like us! They produce fine organic foods with organic fruits, and have been doing so since 1953. They’re experienced and they know how to make a delicious product!
They Use Organic Apples
Apples are part of the Dirty Dozen, the top 12 most contaminated fruits and vegetables. These are the produce items that are most heavily sprayed, and contain the most toxins and chemicals. In fact, by choosing just these 12 produce items organically, you can reduce your pesticide intake by up to 80%. A little effort goes a long way! What are the Dirty Dozen? For 2015, the Environmental Working Grouplist of the Dirty Dozen (+ 2) includes apples, celery, cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, grapes, nectarines, peaches, potatoes, snap peas, spinach, strawberries, sweet bell peppers, hot peppers and kale/collard greens. Want to learn more about this and find out what the cleanest 15 produce items are? Visit www.ewg.orgfor more information. Thankfully, Filsinger’s uses 100% certified organic apples, which also means they are non-GMO.
It’s Sugar Free
In fact, no sweeteners are used to make the Apple Butter. It’s just the sweetness of the apples giving it its fantastic flavour!
To make great apple butter, you need more than just the best apples. Filsinger’s spent great time and effort handcrafting their recipe for this amazing product to make sure it’s the best it can be. It’s made in small batches from an old fashioned recipe, and this extra time and care means that they are able to maximize the naturally occurring sweetness in the apples and achieve an amazing depth of flavour without adding any other ingredients. Handcrafted and delicious!
