An Elevated PB&J September 12 2014

Do you feel that chill in the air? It can only mean one thing...

September hits and I am in the mood for a comforting PB&J or some variation. Of course, the filling has to be exquisite, not filled with sugar but recalling the memories of summer fruit. Enter: my jam. Black & Blue was a favorite in my own kids' lunchbox, after they had helped pick the berries and load the fruit into a pot earlier in the summer. The nutty part of the equation has expanded with the relatively new nut butters on the market.


A recent discovery is Big Spoon Roasters. Their nut butters are fantastically tasty, and feature clever flavor combinations like Chai Spice Nut Butter and Cocoa Nib Peanut Butter. Their products recall the classic flavors of childhood, reimagined for a more sophisticated palate - whether you're packing a midday meal for someone special or enjoying your own stroll down memory lane.

After tasting several different combinations, we're happy to recommend a few favorites:

In fact, we love them all so much, we've even teamed up with Big Spoon Roasters to offer a gift basket this holiday season (coming soon!) featuring their delicious nut butters alongside my own jams— a great gift idea for a new college student missing the taste of home, a hardworking teacher who's gone above and beyond, or anyone else who simply enjoys a great sandwich.
