Ben Jacobsen and I founded our respective businesses at almost exactly the same time. We had both been exploring our ideas of starting a hand-harvested sea salt company and a handmade nut butter roastery, respectively, in 2010 and then starting really selling at the outset of 2011. With craft, quality, sustainability, and integrity as the driving forces behind Jacobsen Salt Co. and Big Spoon Roasters, we’ve both seen our dreams grow into tangible work that people can hold and taste. We’ve wanted to work together for years, but distance and shipping costs have always offered formidable challenges. Today, though…
Peanut Butter made with Jacobsen Sea Salt & Bee Local Honey
This limited edition Peanut Butter recipe offers the perfect flavor balance of fresh-roasted NC peanuts, Bee Local’s Oregon High Desert Honey, organic virgin coconut oil, and Jacobsen Sea Salt with a uniquely coarse-ground, addictive texture. We love it spread thickly on fresh Oregon apple and pear slices.
Peanut Hazelnut Butter made with Heirloom Oregon Hazelnuts, Jacobsen Sea Salt & Bee Local Honey
Made with fresh-roasted NC peanuts, Barcelona and Clark variety Oregon hazelnuts, hand-harvested Jacobsen Sea Salt, and Bee Local’s Oregon High Desert Honey, this limited edition Peanut Hazelnut Butter is a rich, golden, naturally sweet reminder that distance is no match for delicious collaboration.
The two new Limited Batch nut butters are available in a special 2-pack via Big Spoon Roasters, Jacobsen Salt Co., and select retailers while supplies last.
Big Spoon Roasters makes handcrafted nut butters from scratch with ingredients sourced directly from like-minded producers who share a dedication to authentic quality. Each small batch is handmade to order, producing uniquely fresh, delicious, and nutritious nut butters with a signature coarsely milled texture.
Oregon’s temperate ocean, clear rivers, mountain air, and rich volcanic soil make for the world’s best hazelnut-growing country, not to mention ideal conditions for hand-harvested sea salt and thriving honeybee apiaries. Jacobsen Salt Company harvests pure salt crystals straight from Oregon’s cold waters using traditional methods. Bee Local makes artisan micro-batch neighborhood honey from hives across the state. In this first-time collaboration, we are combining our three crafts to produce two limited edition nut butters that represent the best of our respective regions. We hope you love these Limited Batch nut butters as much as we do!
