The Story Behind this Chai Spice Nut Butter:
The Chai Spice Nut Butter is a traditional Masala Chai blend of cardamom, cloves, ginger, cinnamon, vanilla, and black pepper. Big Spoon Roasters slowly mixes the blend with fresh-roasted, freshly milled peanuts and almonds. Then the artisan adds local wildflower honey and sea salt to create a bright, complex burst of flavor in every spoonful.
A lifelong peanut butter lover, I received my first lesson in handcrafted nut butter in 1999 while living in a rural farming community in Zimbabwe, where I was a Peace Corps Volunteer. Inspired by the unforgettable peanut butter experience I had in Africa, I started roasting nuts and milling them into fresh nut butters in my home kitchen. My wife, Megan, and I started Big Spoon Roasters in January 2011 to share our foods with others and turn our passions into a business.
