Okay, we’ll admit it. Standard peanut butter is already pretty perfect – sweet, salty, rich and sticky. Delicious on everything from toast and crackers to fruit and desserts. Take this kindergarten classic, remove the preservatives and stabilizers, mix in some bold spices and what you get is a very grown-up version of your favorite lunchbox standby. Based in the Eliot neighborhood of Portland, Michael makes adult nut butters using only bona fide, non-GMO North Carolina peanuts, grinding ‘em up into a smooth, spreadable consistency with savory spice blends like honey chipotle and garam masala. Enjoy these nutty combinations in between slices of bread, melted over noodles or straight up on a spoon.
