Legend has it that some groups of Native American Indians considered fresh pecan milk to be one of nature's best foods for promoting high energy. They made it by using a mortar and pestle to pound raw pecans into a buttery paste, then adding water and stirring until they had deeply nourishing pecan milk, which was easily digested by their infants and elders.
You can make your own fresh pecan milk by combining a few tablespoons of Artisana's buttery pecan purée with water and giving it a quick blend. For added sweetness, you can throw in a few dates or a natural sweetener like raw honey.
Artisana's organic raw pecan is also excellent on its own by the spoonful, or processed together with soaked dates and a touch of cocoa powder to make the healthiest and most decadent truffles you can imagine.

Frequently Asked Questions and Answers On Artisana Pecan Butter
Are the nuts soaked before being made into nut butter?
The raw nuts are not soaked before being crafted into tasty, healthy, organic, raw nut butter. All of the nuts used can sprout or grow when germinated/soaked. Soaking the nuts adds substantial water (even after dehydrating), and adds bacteria and moisture, which reduces shelf life to just a few days.
Why are there cashews in Artisana Pecan Butter?
Cashews make the pecan butter more creamy and spreadable. Cashews also act as a natural sweetener to temper the natural mild bitterness of the pecan skins, which are included for their health benefits.
Does Artisana Pecan Butter need to be refrigerated?
Artisana Pecan Butter does not need to be refrigerated for more than 18 months after they are produced.
If you plan on using Artisana Pecan Butter within a month of receiving it, refrigeration is not necessary, provided that you use only clean and dry utensils in the bottle. It's easier to use the butter when it's at room temperature.
If you don't plan on opening the jar for a month or longer, it's best to refrigerate to prolong freshness.
Another tip: Be sure to give the nut butter a good mix after opening for the firs time - this helps to evenly distribute the healthy raw oils in this product.
