Where to Buy Cashew Butter?

I'm trying out a new recipe. It's a brown rice and walnut loaf with cashew gravy. The recipe requires "cashew butter," which I've never even heard of.

Where does one find cashew butter? I don't think the regular grocery stores carry it, but of course, I have never ever looked for the product, so don't know. Would it be in the baking aisle or the dairy section?

I'm in the Los Angeles area (South Bay).

  1. look for it where you find peanut butter. or perhaps with the peanut butter in the natural foods/organics section.

      Great! Thanks so much, vanillagrrl!

    2. Trader Joe's carries it as well.

      1. Whole Foods and Trader Joe's both carry cashew butter.

          I looked for cashew butter at my local Whole Foods (Tustin, CA) but they did not have it.

            I was just there yesterday -- they have it, but it's near the bulk nuts, not near the peanut butter. It's also ridiculously, shamefully, chutzpathically expensive.

            Henry's in Fullerton has it for -- literally -- a third of the price of that ridiculous Tustin Whole Foods.

              Huh, guess that's why it's called Whole Paycheck, eh? Last time I was at WF I was laughing at how expensive some of their stuff is. That's why I prefer Sprouts these days. Will try Henry's next time. Thanks for the tip! :-)

        2. I love cashew butter. Definitely Trader Joe's. They always have tons of nut butters.

          1. I would go to a health foods store.

              My local co-op has cashew, almond and occasional macadamia butter.

                Trader Joe's has plain cashew butter and also cashew-macadamia butter. Plus soynut butter and sunflower butter for people who are allergic to peanuts and tree nuts.
