I wowed my guests!
I made almond butter ice cream for a dinner party with this, using Ben & Jerry's recipe for peanut butter ice cream, everybody loved it.

Unbelievable
This is the best almond butter I have ever tasted. The flavor is so addictive. I will continue buying Villa Jerada amlou almond butter as long Chefshop continues offering it.

Villa Jerada Amlou
12 oz - Morocco/Seattle

Ingredients: Almond, Wildflower Honey, Argan oil 

This healthy ingredient smooth like a creamy peanut butter has a distinct taste that is incredibly addictive. At first spoonful, as you lick and then smoosh it around, flavors of the argan, almonds and the sweetness of the honey blend pefectly. Just a tiny bit of texture keeps it interesting as you press your tongue to the roof of you mouth and finish the taste.

At first you think it's just a "peanut" or some other nut butter, and of course by name it is. As an ingredient or as food by itself it is completely different. The mixture of these three healthy ingredients is special indeed. 

Amlou - Amalou has been around for a long time. Often associated with the Berber Tribes and one of the foods carried when trekking long distances. The argan oil, the wildflower honey and the almonds are blended to create this healthy food. Villa Jerada uses more Argan oil than others so you get the health benefits and the flavor to stand out. 

 There is not just one Amlou version. From town to town and city to city, the variations are many and the personalites of each are different. And like peanut butter easy to make. All you need is the best food grade argan oil (many argan oils are meant for cosmetics, sold for food) a high quality honey, and excellent almonds. And patience as you perfect your Moms recipe!

Mehdi of Villa Jerada has been working on this "food" for a long time. Making it for himself at home, and bringing it from Morocco to have as well. 

Making anything in larger quanities is a totally different process than making it at home and Mehdi knows this. His desire to create the same "homemade" product is why Villa Jerada foods are so darn good!

This Amlou is another extension of his homemade kitchen. Using more Argan oil than commercial versions is why this food is so good for you in flavor and healthy benefits. With a wildflower honey from a beekeeper in Eastern Washington adds a local flavor with almonds from a grower in California. 

Even with a recipe to start, it takes a lot of tweeking from the grind to the mix. And what seemed like forever, from our first taste to launch, over a year we are so happy that this sweet, nut buttery best food is here! Enjoy!
