A selection of six jars of our favorite spices 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.
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.
Wild Za'atar (1.3 oz glass jar)
Our Wild Za'atar is sourced from a women's cooperative in Palestine and is a blend of wild za'atar herbs and sumac, sesame seeds and local olive oil. It's incredibly fragrant and complex, the best za'atar we've ever tasted. It's excellent on everything from fried eggs to toast to roasted vegetables or chicken.
Ground Black Lime (1.8 oz glass jar)
Our ground Black Lime is grown on a family farm in Guatemala, where ripe limes are dried in the sun until they oxidize, turning black and savory. A versatile ingredient common in Persian cooking, they have a savory, tart flavor that's great on roasted meat or vegetables, in stews and anywhere you'd use lime juice.
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 as it ripens and has a softer, sweeter flavor than standard green cardamom.
