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's cashews are lightly toasted to a golden brown, preserving their delicately sweet flavor, which balances perfectly with our fresh-roasted peanuts, honey, and sea salt.
Technically the seed of the tropical cashew apple, cashews are native to Brazil and have been traded internationally since the 16th Century. Nutritionally, cashews offer heart-healthy monounsaturated fats; copper, which helps our cells produce energy; and magnesium, a mineral that is crucial for nerve health, muscle cell function, and bone health.
