Hello, my name is Nancy Luby Arriaza and I am the “Ama” behind this company. My family and I lived in the Dominican Republic from 1986 through 1991 and I have continued to go several times a year to visit my family. My son-in-law introduced me to this product over twelve years ago, and I loved it from the start. I would always bring several packages home with me, and use it sparingly to make it last.
Recently I was able to form a partnership with a company in the Dominican Republic which is dedicated to providing an excellent product , while at the same time helping support this artisan work in one of the poorer areas of this country, in the town of Moncion. This product is labor intensive to produce and the workers take great pride in the work that they do. This company takes care of their employees , from providing higher than average wages, to supplying school supplies for their children and also providing optometrist for these families.
I am very proud to offer this product to the public here in the United States of America. This product is a staple in every home in the Dominican Republic, and now we have the opportunity to share it with you. This product is especially good for anyone who suffers from gluten intolerance or celiac disease.
Our product, known as Casabi, is easy to prepare. Each package has four pieces and I just place them on a cookie sheet, drizzle liberally with olive oil, rosemary and lightly salt. Then I place them in the oven at 350 degrees for 8 to 12 minutes until lightly toasted, a golden brown. The most exciting thing about this product, for me, is that it has so many ways to serve. Season as you choose with basil, thyme, cinnamon and whatever occurs to you. We make avocado toast and occasionally use almond butter on it as our favorite way to eat it.
The package itself has a shelf life of one year. Just place it in your pantry. Once it is toasted, it will last for a week placed in a ziplock bag or an airtight container. In my family, we serve it with scrambled eggs and refried beans, or raspberry jam, or cheese or even just plain. We also love to make Casabi pizza, topping the toasted bread with arugula, tomatoes and cheese and heating until cheese melts. So yummy! Use your imagination! Season as you wish and then share your recipes on our Facebook page.
We look forward to hearing from you. Adelante!
