For those of us who can have tree nuts but not peanuts, Koinonia—a really cool place in South Georgia that is the birthplace of Habitat for Humanity—is now selling pecan butter. I haven’t seen pecan butter in the stores, and I’m looking forward to trying Koinonia’s. The pecans are not technically organic yet, but I think they are grown without any pesticides. I’ve been buying items from Koinonia for a couple of years now, and everything I’ve eaten from there (chocolate, pecans, peach cake, dates) has been awesome. Purchasing items from Koinonia is investing in community outreach and good farming practices, which is always awesome to be part of.
I must admit I have a selfish motive with this post, too. I encouraged them to try selling pecan butter, and I want it to work out so that it continues to be available for me!
