A selection of six jars of our favorite spices packed beautifully in a box for a perfect gift for the curious cook in your life. The gift box includes our chef's choice of our newest, most popular or most interesting spices.
Black Urfa Chili (1.8 oz glass jar)
Our black chili comes from Urfa, Turkey, where it has been grown and cured for centuries. It has a rich, malty flavor with a lingering burn. The chilis ripen to a deep maroon color, then is cured in its own juices to give it a deeper, umami flavor and beautiful dark color.
Wild Icelandic Kelp (2.5 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, for finishing meat and seafood dishes or as a salt substitute.
Flowering Hyssop Thyme (0.8 oz glass jar)
Our flowering hyssop thyme is a very special herb, only grown in the Middle East, where it is the primary ingredient in the za'atar spice blend along with sumac and sesame seeds. It has an ancient history of culinary and medicinal usage, and has a beautiful floral, herbaceous flavor and aroma.
Cured Sumac (2.3 oz glass jar)
Our spectacular cured sumac has a bright, sour, salty and slightly fermented flavor. A classic Middle Eastern finishing spice, swap it for lemon juice in any recipe or use to add character and brightness to salads, fish, meat or dips. It also makes a perfect topping for anything from hummus to salad to roasted veggies or meat to scrambled eggs.
Royal Cinnamon (1.8 oz in a glass jar)
Our Royal Cinnamon has been harvested in the mountains around the ancient Vietnamese capital city of Huế for milennia. The same species as Saigon cinnamon, this is an heirloom variety not widely harvested or exported, and exemplifies the intense sweetness and spiciness for which Vietnamese cinnamon is prized. Use it in place of Saigon or other cinnamons in pastries and baked goods, or sprinkle into rich, savory meat or tomato-based dishes.
Cloud Forest 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.
