Big Spoon Roasters

by Anne Paddock

Big Spoon Roasters makes ten handcrafted nut butters from scratch in Durham, North Carolina. Each nut butter starts with freshly harvested nuts (peanuts, pecans, almonds, cashews, or brazil nuts) that are roasted, ground, and then blended with wildflower honey which enhances the flavor and serves as a natural preservative – eliminating the need to refrigerate the butters. A touch of sea salt, stone ground chocolate, organic cocoa nibs, organic coconut oil, cardamom, clove, ginger, cinnamon, vanilla, black pepper, or crystallized ginger are also added, depending on the variety.

Mission Almond, a creamy blend of three ingredients: Mission almonds, wildflower honey, and sea salt is bursting with nutty honey flavor while the Peanut Butter made with peanuts, wildflower honey, organic coconut oil, and sea salt offers a refreshing and delicious change from the typical peanut butter.  For chocolate lovers, the Peanut Cocoa Butter is an exquisite blend of peanuts, stone ground chocolate, wildflower honey, organic coconut oil, and sea salt. It’s a peanut butter cup in a jar.253715_176369692420612_100041_n
