Things have gone somewhat nuts over at Liberation Foods HQ, the UK’s first Fairtrade and farmer owned nut company, with the launch of two great tasting snacks:
- Oven baked Chilli & Lime Cashews with Peanuts & Roasted Corn
- Oven Baked Salted Cashews & Peanuts
True to Liberation’s beliefs, all nuts are sourced from co-operatives of small-scale growers and farmers who own a 44% share of the company. With peanuts coming from Nicaragua and Malawi and cashews all the way from India, Liberation is passionately nuts about Fair Trade, the livelihoods of its farmers and providing the best tasting product. All nuts are oven roasted to bring out that extra nutty taste and extra crunchy crunch!
Oven Baked Chilli & Lime Cashews with Peanuts & Roasted Corn
Inspired by the colour and flavour of street food in Latin America, sweet cashew nuts are coated in a special chilli and lime seasoning and oven baked slowly. The peanuts are lightly salted and baked. Once the nuts are perfectly seasoned they are mixed in with the chilli corn kernels to create the perfect blend of citrus and spice that will leave taste buds tingling! Great served with a refreshing cold beer.
Oven Baked Salted Cashews & Peanuts
Each ingredient is baked separately with just the right amount of sprinkled salt (that stays on the nut) to produce the perfect ‘crunch’ and a deeply satisfying savoury hit. Liberation knows that cashews need just a little bit longer under the heat than peanuts and when all are perfectly bronzed, the nuts are cooled before being mixed and bagged. Delicious with a glass of red wine or used as an ingredient in stir-fries or tossed into a ‘Thai’ inspired salad.
Liberation was set up with one simple aim – to bring the producers and consumers of the world together so that everyone gets a fair deal.
