It’s Market Monday and Things Are Feeling a Little Nutty here at the the farm!
These days it seems like we are always on the go! It can be challenging to juggle the many hats that we all wear, especially when the weather begins to cool down and your to-do-list grows overnight. In our last blog, we highlighted easy snacks to grab and go while also fueling your body. This week we are excited to highlight one of those choices, Family of Nuts. Family of Nuts offers high quality roasted nuts, dried fruits, peanut butter spreads and even their own roasted coffee (Yes please!). Nuts are not only a healthy option to snack on, but they are flavorful, quick, and can be used in many different ways.
Family of Nuts is a local, family owned roasting company located in the Washington Metropolitan area. They found their passion when they realized the lack of high quality nut products that were available to them. You may be wondering, “well aren’t all nuts the same?”, the short answer is no! Family of Nuts is unique because every week their nuts are roasted in small batches. They use a unique roasting process to ensure the highest quality product. You can check out a video of their process to see the behind the scenes of their roasting process. How cool! Once you try them, you’ll always taste the difference between their product and your generic nuts from the grocery store.
What are the different varieties?
Family of Nuts offers several different products. In our farm market, we carry Lightly Salted Peanuts, Pistachios, Trail Mix, and our personal favorites Cajun Peanuts and Lemon Pepper.
One of the greatest things about these products is that nuts and dried fruits can be used in a variety of recipes. If you are feeling creative this fall, try adding nuts to a homemade trail mix , pecan pie, or specialty bread and go nuts! Family of Nuts also offers spreads, select dried fruits, and coffee, which can all be found on their website.
