Our Adventurer's Collection includes six of our most unique and adventurous spices, a perfect gift for cooks who love to experiment with new ingredients.
Cinnamon Shavings (0.3 oz glass jar) Our Zanzibar true cinnamon (aka Ceylon cinnamon) is bright and sweet, with notes of pine, citrus peel and sea salt. Our cinnamon shavings are cut by hand from younger branches of the cinnamon tree, and have an evergreen brightness and woodsy complexity unlike any other cinnamon we’ve ever tasted. They’re perfect for infusing in teas, cooking with rice dishes and garnishing cocktails and desserts. Use them whole or grind them into powder. Wild Harvest Star Anise (0.5 oz glass jar) Our star anise is picked by hand in the mountains near the border between Vietnam and China. The cold, cloudy weather during the winter harvest means the star anise fruits need to be dried on racks near a wood fire, and they pick up a beautiful hint of smokiness. Add petals to stocks, braised meats, rice, teas and cocktails, or grind them up for desserts and baked goods. Cobanero Chili (15-25 whole chilis in a glass jar) Our cobanero chili is a rare Mayan variety of chili pepper, only grown in the mountains around the city of Cobán in Guatemala. It has a lush, fruity aroma and a fierce, smoky heat that makes everything taste better. Perfect for anyone who appreciates true chili flavor. They're SO good - fruity like a peach, sweet, slightly smoky, and brightly spicy. Use caution, they're spicier than serrano peppers and in the same range as cayenne peppers.
Cloud Forest Yellow Cardamom(1.7 oz glass jar) Our cardamom comes from the cloud forests of Alta Verapaz, Guatemala, grown on a biodynamic, single estate farm in the mountains. (Check out our video about the farm.) Our yellow cardamom is sweet and tart, reminiscent of summer fruits, fresh herbs and cut grass. The cardamom fruit turns yellow is it ripens and has a softer, sweeter flavor than standard green cardamom.
Pemba Cloves(1.4 oz glass jar) Cloves from some of the oldest clove trees in the world. Our cloves are hand-picked at the last possible moment before flowering, ensuring the largest size and most mature flavor, and then dried in the tropical sun. They are bright, sweet and very spicy, with rich loamy warmth and a numbing menthol buzz. Their island terroir lends a touch of salt and fragrant notes of eucalyptus and tropical flowers.harvested by hand, dried in the sun and delivered directly to your kitchen.
Wild Icelandic Kelp Flakes (2.0 oz glass jar) Harvested from the bottom of the frigid North Atlantic off the coast of Iceland, this wild oarweed kelp has a deep umami flavor and oceanic minerality, salty and briny. Perfect for adding depth, savoriness and body to soups, or for finishing meat and seafood dishes
