Shortly after that, I was at Feast Portland and saw a booth for Elliot’s and made a bee-line to go taste. He has three flavors-Honey Chipotle, Garam Masala and Spicy Thai. While each had some interesting characteristics, the Spicy Thai immediately jumped out at me with a “Wow!” factor. Not sure if it’s the Kaffir lime leaves, lemongrass or what but I made a mental note to get my hands on this business soon.
Eliot’s can be found at Whole Foods, New Seasons in the Portland metro area or online. I picked up a jar at New Seasons for $8/$9 a jar which I thought was reasonable given the price of decent nut butters these days.
I picked up a jar this past Friday and gave it a whirl. I haven’t come up with an “out there” recipe for it yet but I did through it on a slice of Dave’s Killer Bread (Good Seed, of course) with some honey and my toast was forever transformed. We also put a dab on steamed broccoli last night and it was delish.
I’m looking forward to picking up the other two flavors in the near future. In the mean time, I’m off to figure out if I can use this as a massage oil. Yum!
