Ginger Almond Nut ButterMADE BY BIG SPOON ROASTERS IN DURHAM, NORTH CAROLINA
The chewy bits of ginger dotted throughout this super nutty spread make it our go-to nut butter with a cup of tea. It also makes a fantastic sauce for Asian-style shrimp and chicken skewers. –Tina Ujlaki, Executive Food Editor, Food & Wine Magazine
Mark Overbay of Big Spoon Roasters got hooked on ginger at a young age, when his great-grandfather handed him his first bottle of peppery ginger ale.
This jar starts with Fijian ginger preserved in sugar (aka crystallized) and roasted heirloom Mission almonds, stone ground and then jarred while still warm! Finished with a sprinkling of sea salt, it's super versatile...and the new secret weapon in our desk drawers.

Mark suggests this slathered on warm waffles, or as a zesty base for an Asian salad dressing. Or do as we do: open desk drawer, find the biggest spoon around and dig in.
