Spice up your budding gourmet’s lunchbox with Eliot’s Adult Nut Butters, made in small batches in Portland.

The company nearly reinvents the classic staple with its grown-up twists.  These include sophisticated foodie flavors such as Spicy Thai Peanut Butter (which makes a terrific satay sauce), smoky-sweet Honey Chipotle, Indian-inspired Garam Masala, and the newest offering, Harissa Cashew, an inventive peanut-butter alternative spiked with North African hot sauce.

Each 12-ounce jar is packed with flavor, and the website offers sweet and savory recipe ideas to sink your teeth into.

$9–$15 at SugarPill (Capitol Hill), De Laurenti’s (Pike Place Market), Home Remedy (Belltown) and eliotsadultnutbutters.com
