Nutty for Nut Butters

Operating at full capacity with a 3rd grinder machine, we can now offer 3 kinds of organic nut butters!  Now you can grind your own Organic Cashew Butter, Organic Almond Butter as well as Organic Peanut Butter with a New lower price!  The texture is a perfect balance of  crunchy and smooth - just a bit of texture without large nutty chunks.  It is pure, unsalted, unsweetened nutty goodness. 

With a new, conveniently-located station you can easily fill up as much as you'd like!  You may bring in your own container (have us pre-weigh), or use provided 8oz or 16oz plastic deli containers.

 Simple to operate - Green button for Grind,  Red button to stop.  The colorful covers keep the dispensing end clean!

We give it to you straight up, so you can create your own delicious nutty concoctions at home.  Try adding sweeteners like honey, maple syrup, or stevia.  A touch of salt and cinnamon can further enhance the flavor and make for a crave-able snack.

Add other flavorings to make surprisingly satisfying dressings.  Like this Balsamic Dressing from FitMittenKitchen, which can be done with almond or cashew butter.

Or how about this Asian-influenced Almond Butter Dressing atop a Rainbow of Veggies, courtesy of Justin's (who also make some yummy nut butter treats).

Grind as much or as little as you'd like, and taste the difference of fresh-ground!

How do we love bulk foods?  Let us count the ways:

  •  Organic bulk foods on average cost 89% less than their packaged counterparts. Bulk foods also prevent a significant amount of packaging from entering landfills.
  • Bulk goods require less overall transportation to deliver to consumers. Bulk foods do not require the packaging components that must be produced and transported prior to being filled. And the transportation of bulk product to retailers is efficient because it can be packed more densely on a truck.
  • The manufacture of paper and cardboard pulls trees from our forests, dumps contaminated water into our streams and uses enormous amounts of energy resulting in egregious levels of CO2 emissions pumped into our atmosphere.
  •  Food packaging may limit a consumer’s ability to buy in quantities desired which can result in food surplus and ultimately waste.
  • Although most natural food companies sell their food products in recyclable packaging, there are still some food companies that use non-recyclable materials. And some consumers choose not to recycle which creates additional burden in our country’s landfills.
  • Packaging often limits a consumer’s ability to actually see the product they are buying.

Get Ferment'n!

Notable fermentation expert Sandor Katz calls fermentation "creative space between fresh food and rotten food where most of human culture's most prized delicacies and culinary achievements exist."

Fermentation is something of a lost art that is now making a comeback!  Don't be intimidated to give it a try.  Really anyone can do it - with the right tools - and make it easy and fun!

Have you ever attempted to make home-made pickles and found that getting those gherkins to stay in the brine is a tricky process?  Or maybe you've had cabbage grow mold before becoming sauerkraut?  Preserve the bounty of your garden produce without hassle using the Ferment'n Kit!  The secret is their airlock lid innovation which allows carbon dioxide to be released as it ferments, while preventing oxygen from spoiling the batch.  The lid fits over anywide-mouth mason jar.  Plus, the kit comes with a ceramic weight to keep your veggies submerged.

Aside from making produce last longer, fermentation offers a host of health benefits:

  • Nutritional Enhancement -  During fermentation, some nutrients can be pre-digested into more "bioavailable" forms.   Certain vitamins (especially B vitamins) can increase and occasionally new micro-nutrients are created that were not present in the food to start.
  • Detoxification -  In some foods like nuts, tubers, and grains, fermentation actually removes toxins from foods making them edible or more digestible.
  • Probiotics – A variety of live bacterial cultures are present in some fermented foods that have not been heated, important for gut health and immune health.  Researchers are still finding out how these little beneficial microbes can help our health in other ways.
