Virginia Peanuts from The Peanut Shop of Williamsburg

Posted by Bea Davis on Nov 5, 2014 12:23:02 PM

The peanuts they're famous for... handcooked in small batches, distinctively unique, and always great tasting. Virginia Peanuts are one of 4 types of peanuts grown in the U.S. - primarily in Virginia and the Carolinas - and are the largest kernel size of all. They source only the "cream of the crop" - super extra-large, the highest grade available, for their signature nuts. Only 3% of the total harvest qualifies. And all are backed by their rigorous "gold standard" of excellence, a legacy of Southern tradition, and surprising health benefits.  All are made in the USA, by a Virginia peanut company, supporting American farmers. Just a few of the many good reasons to enjoy our Virginia Peanuts.

Austrian pumpkin seed oil is produced through a special pressing technique specifically developed in Styria which is regulated in the strict Austrian food industry code.  The seeds are ground, carefully roasted, and pressed to obtain 100% pure Austrian pumpkin seed oil. The seed oil obtains the dark green color, strong nut aroma and the typical taste only achieved through the careful roasting process. These seeds grow without hulls naturally.

 The dark green seeds are complex and nutty, reminiscent of pistachios and almonds.
