It isn't often that I find a product that is so superior to its ilk that I am compelled to rave about it in an article. But I can't help but give high accolades to a new almond butter that originated in Fresno, California, made with toasted California almonds and will soon be available nationwide.
Barney Butter is a superlative almond butter – in both smooth and crunchy styles – that tastes like almond butter should taste. The smooth is a creamy, grainy-free spread that doesn't separate nor needs stirring or refrigeration. The crunchy is deliciously laden with coarsely chopped almonds that make you take notice of their taste.
Of course, there are other almond butters available in supermarkets and health food stores – and in some locations, you can even fresh grind your own almond butter - so if Barney Butter isn't available in your locale, take advantage of the brands that are. And regardless of the brand you choose, don't simply relegate it to lunchtime AB&J sandwiches (almond butter and jelly) or satisfying breakfast smoothies. Almond butter can be used in savory dishes as well as desserts.
