New Products to Sample

This afternoon, I received two brand new products to sample from Living Tree Organic Foods, Alive & Organic, located in Berkeley, CA.  I was gifted with some delicious Almond Butter as well as some Sesame Tahini.  They both arrived today, and I wanted to give a special “shout out” and thank you to President, Founder and CEO, Jesse Schwartz, for allowing me this opportunity to sample his products.  I am very excited about trying these products and creating some new and delicious recipes with them as well.  Of course, all of you will get to share my new experiences too.  Living Tree Community Foods tries to purchase their produce and ingredients from family farmers as much as possible, and definitely believe in giving back to the community.  They donate their foods and products to live food workshops all over the country and Costa Rica.


The Alive & Organic Almond Butter is made from farmers who have been growing almonds in California for five generations.  The process for making the Living Tree Almond butter takes course over several days.  The almonds are sliced, not ground and it is made often, in small batches to keep it fresh and alive.


The Alive & Organic Sesame Tahini is made from alive and organic, mechanically hulled sesame seeds.  Once again, it is made slowly and the seeds are sliced and never ground.


Living Tree has a wide range of natural and organic products available, ranging from nuts and seed butters to dried fruits and vegetables to organic chocolate, spices and salts and grains and pastas, just to name a few.  Go to their website at or to see all the wonderful, organic products they offer.

Once again, many thanks to Jesse Schwartz for this wonderful tasting opportunity.  I am looking forward to creating some new and delicious recipes with both the Almond Butter and the Sesame Tahini.  Those will be coming to you very soon.
