Peanut Cocoa Butter (Pack of 2)
Our coarsely ground, yet smoothly spreadable Peanut Cocoa butter combines stone-milled dark chocolate (made bean-to-bar from whole cacao) with fresh-roasted peanuts, wildflower honey, sea salt, and a touch of organic coconut oil. As you taste it, the rich, buttery flavors of toasted nuts give way to the bright, earthy complexity of dark chocolate, punctuated by just enough salt to remind you about the honey.
MEET THE MAKER
Founder Mark received his first lesson in handcrafted nut butter in 1999 while living in a rural farming community in Zimbabwe, where he was a Peace Corps Volunteer. After harvest, peanuts were roasted over an open fire and ground by hand between stones as coarse salt was added to taste. Some families added a touch of local honey and fresh coconut oil to complement the salt and smooth out the texture. The deliciously fragrant result was a revelation.
In the fall of 2010, Mark was inspired to recreate that unforgettable peanut butter experience he had in Africa and started roasting nuts and milling them into fresh nut butters in his home kitchen. Inspired to share these foods with others and turn these passions into a business, Mark and his wife, Megan, started Big Spoon Roasters in January 2011 in Durham, NC.
