Hot Peanut Nut Butter
Hot peanut butter is one of Haiti’s most popular condiments, and it’s present in almost every one of the country's households and food markets. Called Mambafor short after the Creole word for peanut, it is most often made with ground peanuts blended with dried Scotch Bonnet, Ghost, and/or Habanero chilies and eaten with bread, thin cassava crackers, or plantain chips. Beloved by almost everyone, it's known to be a favorite, nourishing part of children’s breakfasts before they head off to school.
An homage to this spicy peanut butter tradition, which extends beyond the borders of Haiti into other parts of the Caribbean, our mouthwateringly delicious Hot Peanut Butter blends freshly roasted and milled Runner peanuts, dried Guajillo, Ancho and Habanero chilies, raw organic cane sugar, and sea salt to create a fiery spread as intense as it is addictive. We warned you.
We especially love our Hot Peanut Butter paired with apricot jam or marmalade on crusty bread or toasted English muffins. Combine it with your favorite pepper jelly on slices of banana for an eye-opening appetizer or make it a base for a spicy dipping or noodle sauce; just add coconut milk, lemongrass, ginger, cilantro, and whatever else floats your peanut sauce boat.
