Starting with almonds grown by California family farmers, we’ve added Brazil Nuts.
Dr.Mercola tells us,”Brazil Nuts are an important source of selenium.Selenium is a trace element a Swedish chemist, Baron Jöns Jacob Berzelius, discovered almost 200 years ago. Today, modern scientists recognize it as “an essential mineral of pivotal importance for human health,” with anti-inflammatory, antiviral and anti-cancer potential. This mineral is also a powerful antioxidant, which plays itself out in many ways in regard to your health.”
We’ve added cashews for smoothness and spreadability along with California sundried raisins, honey for delight and a pinch of Royal Himalayan Pink Crystal Salt to bring out the flavors.
Our Organic Garbanzo Beans are grown on a farm that has been in their family for over a century now, in Merrill, Oregon. The family specializes in a diverse crop base on over 2,000 acres of Certified Organic land.
Our Organic Garbanzo Beans are plump, creamy and delicious. An excellent source of protein and fiber, garbanzos supply roughly 27 percent of daily protein and 50 percent of our fiber requirements in one cup. They are especially high in folate, manganese and iron, which are important components in the body’s anti-oxidant activity.
90% of the world’s almonds are grown in California’s Central Valley. It is bounded to the east by the towering Sierras and to the west by the coastal mountain range. Its rich, alluvial soil is wondrously fertile. This great plain is a sea of white in February when the almonds blossom. The orchards are irrigated by water from melting snow high in the Sierras. It is brought to them by a marvelous system of canals. California almonds are sweeter and their flavor is richer and more complex. Imported almond cannot compare. California almonds are simply the best.
We began making almond butter over 25 years ago. Over the years, we have developed a proprietary process: we make the almond butter slowly, over several days. We slice the almonds and never grind them, which exposes the nut to the least heat possible to keep the flavors and properties of the raw nut intact. We make it frequently, in small batches, so it’s fresh and alive.
Our alive cacao butter is of outstanding quality, It comes from the island of Bali. Cacao Butter is a key ingredient in making fine chocolate and confections of all sorts. Grate and add to melted cacao paste along with a sweetener such as honey, agave or palm nectar crystals to make a delightful chocolate. Add chopped raisins and dates, maybe chopped mangoes and persimmons too. Pour mixture onto a baking sheet and allow to harden in you refrigerator. It also makes a great skin care product. Try adding one part grated cacao butter to three parts melted coconut oil. Let it solidify in a wide mouthed jar — it is great for the skin and will impart an exotic fragrance.
