Having been a fan of Edible Boston magazine for some time (I save every issue) I was beyond delighted, actually I was honored, to be asked for an interview about my gourmet nut business. Writer Deb Kaneb did a wonderful article conveying my family history and how it plays a part in all that I do. Find out how a shoe box of old photos led me to my passion.

Thank you editor Ilene Bezahler, and staff, for including me among the fine people you feature in your magazine.

How Does That Nutty Redhead Make The Nut Blends? January 23 2014

Our cooking process is not an American roasted/salted style that many of you are used to (which is a form of deep frying, often with unhealthy oils.)

We use a German Bavarian method where the nuts are kettle cooked and glazed, making for a softer candied finished nut product. Many people appreciate this process, it's gentler to the teeth. 


For a real treat, put a serving size of nuts in a microwave safe dish and warm them about 15-25 seconds. They're heavenly!!

 

Remember we have no artificial flavors, and no preservatives. Try some of our premium almonds, cashews, and pecans today!!

The Health Benefits Of Almonds, Cashews, and Pecans in That Nutty Redhead Frosted & Gourmet Nuts January 06 2014

Science continues to prove the health benefits of a handful of tree nuts daily. Tree nuts such as  Almonds, Pecans, and Cashews are cholesterol-free and full of protein and fiber.

They are a good source of vitamins (Niacin, Vit E, B-6) and minerals (such as magnesium, copper, selenium, phosphorous and potassium) essential for a healthy diet.

While nuts are relatively high in fat, 85% of the fat in nuts are unsaturated and can help reduce the risk of developing heart disease. Nuts are a good source of antioxidants and phytochemicals, used to prevent chronic diseases.

We say, "Live a little, while you live a little longer!"

Thank you all for a great 2013 retail season. We are expanding in 2014 to include more wholesale clients at distinctive gourmet and gift shops. We're also working on some new flavors, for example, sweet-smoked nuts, and Rum flavor. 

Cape Ann residents can pick up our gourmet nuts at The Cave: Purveyors of Cheese, Chocolate, and Wine. 44 Main St. Gloucester, MA.

You can also call Lisa, aka That Nutty Redhead, to place an order at 978-412-5662 for pick up in Rockport, MA.

Almonds Are A Superfood Packed With Vitamin E, Iron, And Fiber December 05 2013

Almonds, Cashews, and Pecans are a healthy and delicious snack. Did you know that an ounce of Almonds contains more vitamin E than the same ounce of blueberries? There's more iron than in spinach, and four times as much fiber as in broccoli in the same serving size. It's documented at the National Nutrient Database.

At That Nutty Redhead we are committed to bringing you delicious wholesome gourmet nut blends without chemical preservatives, artificial color, or artificial flavor. We only use pure high quality spices, and Madagascar vanilla in our recipes.

 We love to receive customer comments, this recent one, from a devout customer, brought a chuckle.  She writes- Latest order received. Latest order eaten. We may have to move in with you!!

 No need to move, we will ship our delicious nuts anywhere! They're great as a snack, on top of salad, in yogurt, hot and cold cereal, and in your favorite baked goods. Thanks for your kind support!!
