Stuart & Kathryn Franklin are the friendly nuts behind the Proper Nutty brand. In 2005 they moved abroad where they developed a taste for really good quality peanut butter that hadn’t been messed around with too much, or contains anything that doesn’t need to be there!
Soon they found that they were using peanut butter, not just spread on toast for breakfast, but in other meals and recipes.
When they moved back to Yorkshire in 2012 it was one of the things they really missed, so started to make their own. When friends and family tasted their homemade peanut butter they really liked it and suggested they should make it on a larger scale. So they did.
With experience in the food retail world, it wasn’t long before they moved from a kitchen table to a little factory in Dewsbury, installed a roaster and a grinder, and now make all their own artisan peanut butter to commercial standard and consistent quality. Small enough to give expert hands-on care to every aspect of production, and big enough to supply shops all around the country and beyond.
They slowly roast peanuts in small batches and then carefully grind them until they naturally attain our unique Proper Nutty smunchy texture. Nothing artificial goes into the peanut butter.
The “Nowt but Nuts” is 100% peanuts and the “Slightly Salted” only contains 0.5% natural sea salt, that’s it!
And just in case it’s something you haven’t come across before – peanut oil rising to the top is natural, so simply give it a stir when you open the jar and it’s ready to be enjoyed… in something, on something, however you like to savour your Proper Nutty!
