Sweet Maple Pecan Butter

Prairie Pantry pecan butter is unique -

typically not found in stores. While some

nut butters are simply finely ground raw

nuts, and some are toasted before

grinding, to bring out their flavor;

Prairie Pantry pecan butter undergoes

additional steps in its journey to the jar.

First the pecans are soaked overnight;

and then they’re dehydrated all day.

Only then can they be toasted, turned

into butter, blended with maple syrup

and perhaps cacao nibs, and bottled up.

Soaking and dehydrating is a time-consuming process that is probably impractical for large-scale producers, but is doable on a small to medium scale.

Soaking and dehydrating is believed to reduce phytic acid, which improves digestibility and consequently improves our ability to absorb the nuts’ nutrients. There are several web sites that discuss this subject and explain better than I could hope to. One is by the Weston Price Foundation. Another is Chris Kresser's web page.  

Even without the benefit of improved digestibility, soaking the nuts mellows the flavor and removes bitterness that can be tasted in raw nuts or those that are simply toasted.

Indulge in a spoonful for a treat. Or enjoy it with fruit and crackers. Prairie Pantry pecan butter is all natural, with no sugar and no stabilizers to inhibit oil separation. Even so, it is remarkably spreadable.

Apple Butter

Yes, it is possible to make apple

butter without corn syrup or even

cane sugar! Let the natural sweetness

of the apples shine through. This

classic-flavored apple butter is smooth

and spicy. We start by making

applesauce from our organically

homegrown apples; then leave it to

simmer all day and night, to caramelize

the apples and bring out their natural sweetness.

Honey and Beeswax

All beekeepers are partial to their bees;

but ours really are special! They enjoy a

nectar diet based on the wide

variety of fruits, vegetables,

perennials, and annual flowers we have

planted at Prairie Pantry. The honey is

always light and floral in flavor. It has a

real following around Five Mile Prairie

now, and is in limited supply; so we only

sell it locally.

Fruits and Vegetables

Prettiest of all, are pictures from the garden.
