Ostara Cocotella A Raw Chocolate Coconut Butter

12 oz. jar

$11.00
Cocotella is a coconut butter with added cacao nibs and coconut sugar, stone ground for 3 days. It's like a healthier version of Nutella! All the ingredients are organic: it is a mix of healthy coconut fat and sugar that help to deliver direct trade Nicaraguan cacao. The key difference from other nut butters is the fact that coconut butter is solid at room temperature. However, at temperatures of 76 degrees and above, it starts to melt. This makes the butter more pliable and spreadable. This product has been stone ground in small batches for 24 hours at a low speed and low temperature. This creates a texture and taste impossible to replicate in high-speed, high-throughput metal processing machines (metal-on-metal cutting machines have implications for quicker oxidation and rancidity as well as zinc and cadmium toxicity in food). The result is a silky smooth texture without grit or dryness and a sweeter flavor. Ingredients: Coconut, Cocoa Nibs and Coconut sugar.

Raw Honey Trio- Golden Gate Neighborhood

3 3-oz. jars

$20.00
This trio makes a great host gift for Holiday parties! Alice Rosenthal, beekeeper and rescuer, likes to think of honey as in Forest Gump's famous line, "Local honey is like a box of chocolates - you never know what you might get". The beauty and surprise behind local wildflower honey is - you just don't know what you're gonna get. But one thing for sure - they are all going to taste great and different from each other. Alice of Golden Gate Neighborhood Honey, maintains slightly over 100 hives in Alameda and Contra Costa Counties. The majority of maintained hives are from West Richmond, Upper Fruitvale, and North Oakland/South Berkeley. Most are wild honey that was harvested while rescuing and relocating honey bees in naturally occurring hives. The honey is processed differently when it is harvested from a wild environment. There are no frames to support the comb it must then be crushed (with hands) to liberate the honey. While harvesting the honey, small amounts of pollen and wax enter into the honey. Her efforts are helping our local bee populations happy and healthy. Let's support her in keeping our local trees pollinated! These Jars are randomly picked form her many Wild harvests and make a great sampler of the huge varieties in flavor color and texture. The trios are random selections of three varieties: Hercules, Richmond Marina, El Sobrante, El Cerrito, Albany, Berkeley, Rockridge, Montclair, Fruitvale, Hayward, Claremont.

Yume Boshi Umeboshi Salty Pickles

9 oz. jar

$20.00
Yume Boshi founder Ayako Iino grew up eating her mother's house made umeboshi pickles. She founded Yume Boshi in 2013 as the fruit on the ume plum trees became ripe in Northern California.

Umeboshi is a savory ume plum pickle eaten as a condiment for rice every day in Japan. She uses locally sourced plums and traditional methods of preparation. Ume plums are salted, flavored with red shiso leaves, and then dried under the California sun to make umeboshi. The ultimate companion for a bowl of plain steamed rice. (Mix in small amount as you wish.) Stronger taste than your usual pickle - a little goes a long way!??
