The Eli’s Cheesecake Company of Chicago is now offering Mini Pumpkin Pies for foodservice and in-store bakeries. These are the perfect, easy dessert to re-pack or sell individually in service cases.
These Mini Pumpkin Pies feature a custardy, lightly-spiced filling made with pumpkins from Stahlbush Island Farms, baked in an all-butter crust, sprinkled with coarse sugar. Stahlbush Island Farms is an environmentally friendly farm and food processor committed to sustainable agriculture. As an ingredient supplier to the bakery industry, Stahlbush is one of the largest processors of frozen pumpkin puree in the industry. Quality control is a high priority in their production process. For every lot processed, they run tests to ensure the best results for moisture, grit, pH, brix, total plate count per gram, texture, color and flavor, as requested. Additionally, they have a program in place for pathogen screening to ensure food safety. Their philosophy is that farming practices should leave the soil, air, water, plant life, animals and people healthier. For them and Eli’s, sustainability is a continuing journey. In 1997, Stahlbush became one of the first farms in the country to be certified sustainable by the Food Alliance.
