I volunteered to review Meridian nut butters and seed spreads and received a package containing Organic Cashew Butter, Organic Almond Butter and Organic Pumpkin Seed Butter. Meridian products are suitable for vegetarians with some options for vegans, diabetics and those with food allergies.  They also included a range of Free From cooking sauces which I shall review on a different occasion.

I refrained from opening up all the jars at once and decided to begin with the cashew butter. I grew up on peanut butter and the consistency of the cashew butter is very similar. It sounds silly to say it out loud but you can tell this is a pure, natural product as it has a distinct cashew flavour. Spreads are versatile products, spread them on toast or incorporate into cooking. I wanted to see how the cashew butter performed in a recipe so opted to cook Vegan Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Nut Cookies. In this recipe it suggested using almond, cashew or peanut butter. The verdict was that I think the cashew butter gave the biscuits a creamy taste and they were delicious. I'm keen to try making a stir fry sauce next time, instead of peanut butter in a satay sauce I'll substitute for cashew butter.

I've enjoyed experimenting with Meridian Cashew Butter, I may not be ready to give up peanut butter but it’s a nice addition to my store cupboard. Meridian speciality spreads and seed butters are available online or check the website to find local stockists. I think next on my list to try will be the Cocoa and Hazelnut butter.
