|Artisana Raw 100% Coconut Butter|
As you can see, it appears crumbly coming out of the jar. Imagine a dry, unsweetened peanut butter: rather than being buttery, it feels more starchy, yet strangely velvety in the mouth due to the coconut oils. (However, 2 TBS comes in at only 2 net carbs, if one is counting such things, because of the fiber content.)
I went to the Artisana website to look for recipes, and though I have some ideas for what I might do with it, I can't stop eating it right out of the jar, a teaspoon at a time. It seems decadent to eat it that way. Something about the texture and mouthfeel just fascinate me. It's not overly sweet, and it's not overly coconutty.
I'll continue to splurge on this--it's really quite tasty. I'm hoping I can make the jar last the rest of the month, but I may end up using it as a dessert ingredient, or incorporating it into a Thai or Indian sauce.
