‘Tis the Season to be Nutty…

by Sarah on November 30, 2012 · 114 comments

There seems to have been a bit of a flavor theme around The Smart Kitchen lately.

almost makes up for the tragedy that was sold out pumpkin spice. almost.

From morning–

gingerbread proats w. muesli, apples, and cranberries

—when these particular Capella drops became a permanent fixture on the kitchen counter–

tastes yummy mixed in yogurt, too...

to night [when it infiltrated my nightly cup (or two..or three) of tea].

I couldn’t fight it.So I let it win.And I’m pretty darn happy about it, too.

I am not lying when I say that the first of the December Nutty Butter flavors is pretty much the most irrestible concoction of rich, sweet molasses and spiced ginger I have ever come across. I literally cannot stop eating it once it is made. I don’t know what more  I can tell you than that.

Run, run, Mr. Cookie Man,

If anyone can turn Gingerbread into Nutty Butter…

Miss Smart can. :)

and if anyone can design lovely labels...well, it's calee himes.

Considering the overload of orders that was November–of which I am incredibly thankful, but also distraught at my tardiness in shipping–I almost didn’t want to release the second flavor this month.

But, well, I’m a bit like a proud mama wanting to show off my babies to the world sometimes.

color coding via bubble wrap. thank you wal-mart.

And there is really only one time of year for sweet, creamy, buttery nutmeg-and-cinnamon spiked ‘nog, now isn’t there?

Now, if only I could find the Hoops & Yo Yo e-card that I credit for making me even aware that eggnog* was a tradition.

*NOG! NOG! NOG!

I didn’t drink it growing up.

But I’ll happily eat it now.

To quote a taste tester: “How’d you get milk in it?”

My answer? ‘I didn’t. I’m just that good.’ ;)

Want to be a part of the seasonal deliciousness?

E-mail nuttybutterbrand@gmail.com with the following information:

  • Name
  • How many jars (and of which type)
  • Shipping Address (or at least state and zip code)
  • Payment preference: Paypal or personal check

[Please remember this is not my full time job, so it might take me up to 48 hours to respond. Please also remember this is not my full time job, and life gets in the way sometimes...so if I have not responded within four days, please DO e-mail again. :) ]

I will accept orders until midnight on Monday, December 10, 2012.

After that, you will be added to a waiting list for extra jars should I not receive payments or I miraculously have time to make extra…

Note: I am setting a cap for orders this month at 75 jars. Once I hit that, I will accept no more orders. This is the only way I can possibly get them to you by Christmas.

Oooh, favorite seasonal flavor is most definitely sugar cookie. Is that a flavor? Sugar? Don’t answer that.

Also, not sucking up here, but I heart our email exchanges so much.

My favorite seasonal flavor is actually gingerbread! But second up would have to be peppermint, especially when paired with chocolate, mmm.

You ARE just that good!!! I’m kinda excited to try and make vegan shortbread cookies this year. Although I don’t have cool Christmas cookie cutters…but luckily my mom lives less than a mile away, so she’s my go-to lady to steal…umm, I mean ‘borrow’ stuff from ;)

You must secretly be in my head, because my favorite seasonal flavor is gingerbread. I can’t wait to make a big loaf, and then roll out some of my world-famous gingerbread cookies. Can it be Christmas yet? And I love soy nog (or s’nog, as it is much more fun to call it), but peppermint may be my favorite seasonal flavor. Although I hate regular mint. Go figure. I seriously want a jar of each of these.

My favorite seasonal flavor is peppermint -seriously you just have to look at my list of things I want to make this season to figure that out! But very close second would have to be gingerbread (which always turns into lebkuchen in my house -gingerbread’s dried fruit and almond studded german cousin often dipped in chocolate. It’s quite tasty and we actually just had lebkuchen crockpot oats for breakfast!)
