Big Spoon Roasters

Big Spoon Roasters

We all know Jif and Skippy, and of course they will always hold a special place in our childhood hearts, but it’s time for a real nut butter. That is, a hand-crafted, made to order jar of a natural nut butter. That’s right, Big Spoon Roasters has changed the nut butter game, and our latest obsession is their Almond Ginger Butter. What’s even more exciting? Chef Cat Cora has included it in our second box of the year, just in time for Mother’s Day!

Every jar is made from scratch in Durham, NC. According to the Big Spoon Roaster’s website, “Our world-class ingredients are sourced directly from local and like-minded producers who share our dedication to authentic quality and sustainability. Our promise: To make the most delicious foods possible without compromise, setting the highest standards for integrity, flavor, and freshness in the process.” As soon as you try a jar, you know they’ve kept that promise.

 

Big Spoon Roaster’s almond ginger butter unsurprisingly happens to be a bestseller from their web shop. Made of only heirloom freshly-roasted mission almonds, crystalized Fiji ginger, and Jacobsen sea salt, it’s a must have for your pantry. Almond ginger nut butter might just be a near-perfect snack base. It’s got plant-based protein, vitamin E, and fiber to keep you satisfied and thriving all day long. 

This flavorful nut butter pairs perfectly for breakfast with warm waffles, pancakes, or toast. It is a unique PB substitute for a PB&J and a delicious base for an Asian inspired dressing. If you need a quick snack, there’s no shame in eating it right out of the jar.

If your mornings are busy, the almond ginger butter is delicious in overnight oats. Take 1 cup of rolled oats, 3/4 cup of milk of your choice, and 2 tablespoons of almond ginger nut butter. Add all ingredients to mason jar with lid and shake. Place it in refrigerator overnight. In the morning, shake again, open and add toppings of your choice. It’s healthy, easy, and a great way to start the day!

For a flavorful Thai sauce: mix the almond ginger butter with rice vinegar, soy sauce, honey (or agave nectar), lime juice, ginger, sesame oil, garlic, red chili flakes, and salt and pepper in a medium bowl. This dressing is delicious on salads, grilled chicken, or for dipping your favorite appetizers.

There are so many recipes to incorporate, or substitute in, almond ginger butter. Not only is it a healthier substitute, it’s delicious.
