Big Spoon nut butters are handcrafted using the best possible ingredients, such as fresh runner variety peanuts from the Carolinas, wildflower honeys from the NC Piedmont, NC pecans, California almonds, and pristine sea salt. Unlike many “natural” nut butter companies, Big Spoon does not use palm oil. If your jar of Big Spoon has a little oil at the top, rest assured that it’s from the nuts in the jar, stir it back in, and enjoy! All of our nut butters also contain freshly harvested wildflower honey, which not only enhances flavor, but also serves as a natural preservative that prevents staling and spoilage. And so, there is no need to refrigerate them (unless you just like them cold).
Big Spoon roast California almonds slowly at lower temperatures to caramelize them a bit more than their peanuts, emphasizing almonds’ sweet aroma and signature crunch. Their heartiest nut butter.
After millennia of almond agriculture, almonds were brought to California by Spanish settlers in the 18th Century, when they quickly became an American classic. Packed with nutrition, almonds represent one the world’s richest sources of natural vegetarian protein (at 10% by weight). Almonds are also rich in heart-healthy monounsaturated fats, fiber, calcium, riboflavin, niacin, and vitamin E.
