Organic Almond Butter
There are two types of almond, sweet and bitter. We use sweet almonds (Prunus dulcis) to make sweet almond oil. The almond is part of the plum family. Botanically, they are a fruit and an ancient ancestor of large-stoned fruits, such as apricots, peaches and plums.
The beautiful almond tree is a medium-sized tree with white blossoms. It is native to the Middle East and North Africa, but now grown in the Mediterranean and California.
Organic means that the almonds have been grown without chemicals.
Almond butter is made from raw or toasted almonds.
Our almonds originate in the warmth of California, one of the largest almond growing areas in the world.
The almonds themselves have to undergo several different processes before they are finally made into almond butter. They are shelled and sorted into groups of those suitable enough to become butter.
Almond crops are very susceptible to weather, achieving larger quantities in sunny climates. The trees themselves don't produce almonds for the first three or four years of their lives and will be productive until around twenty-five years. To produce the almonds, the flowers need to be pollinated and many of the producers keep beehives to encourage this.
