Chai Spice Nut Butter
Our Chai Spice nut butter combines American agriculture in the form of peanuts, almonds, and wildflower honey with traditional tea spices of the Indian subcontinent, where “chai” is simply a word for “tea” in Hindi. Like gumbo in Louisiana or peach pie in Georgia, there are as many spiced tea recipes in India as there are families, who pass them down from generation to generation. Our Chai Spice mixture is a traditional Masala Chai blend of cardamom, cloves, ginger, cinnamon, vanilla, and black pepper, which we slowly mix with fresh-roasted, freshly milled peanuts and almonds before adding local wildflower honey and sea salt to create a bright, complex burst of flavor in every spoonful. Megan, who drinks hot chai every morning in the cold months, always had a hard time choosing a favorite Big Spoon nut butter…until now.
