The 6 spice collection includes:
Silk Chili (1.8 oz glass jar)
These summery and spicy Silk Chili come from Kahramanmaras, Turkey. Also known as marash pepper, the Silk Chili is botanically identical to the Aleppo pepper, which has been cultivated in Syria for centuries. They have a warm, tomato-like flavor and a medium heat, similar to Espelette and Korean chilis.
Wild Mountain Cumin (1.5 oz glass jar)
Our wild cumin seeds are tiny, oblong and black with long stems, renowned in Afghanistan and throughout central and south Asia for its delicious flavor as well as its medicinal properties. It has a savory, penetrating aroma and bright, umami flavor evocative of grilled meats and sweet caramelized onions.
Smoked Pimentón Paprika (1.8 oz glass jar)
Our smoked paprika is sourced from a single fabrica in Extremadura, a hot, dry region of western Spain. This deeply smoky, savory paprika is made from sweet red peppers dried over oak coals and adds an incredible depth of flavor to any dish.
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 (sometimes spelled zaatar, za'tar or zatar), 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.
Royal Cinnamon (1.8 oz glass jar)
Our Royal Cinnamon has been harvested in the mountains around the ancient Vietnamese capital city of Huế for milennia. The Royal Cinnamon is an heirloom variety not widely harvested or exported, and exemplifies the intense sweetness and spiciness for which Vietnamese cinnamon is prized.
Purple Stripe Garlic (1.8 oz glass jar)
Our Purple Stipe Garlic Powder comes from an heirloom variety with a purple stripe on its papery skin. It has a savory & sweet flavor profile that adds depth and complexity to everything it touches.
The 9 spice collection also includes:
Herati Saffron (0.5 oz jar)
Our saffron threads are pulled carefully from the flower, which leaves a characteristic flame-colored tail on each thread. That slight gradation in color is your assurance that our saffron is 100% pure and never dyed or otherwise adulterated. Our saffron threads are also uncommonly delicate, with a warm, honeyed fragrance reminiscent of dried roses and fresh hay.
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, this will add a savory, tart flavor perfect anywhere you'd use a squeeze of lemon or lime.
Buffalo Ginger (1.8 oz glass jar)
Our buffalo ginger is an heirloom ginger variety from a group of farmers in the mountains of northern Vietnam. Known for its fruity and floral aroma and powerful heat, this is a complex & flavorful ginger powder that will elevate baked goods, stews and curries, and beverages from hot drinks to cocktails.
The 12 spice collection also includes:
New Harvest Turmeric (1.9 oz glass jar)
Our turmeric is grown organically in southern India by Dr. Salunhke, an expert farmer specializing in sustainable agricultural techniques. It has a sweet, floral flavor without the metallic bitterness found in lower quality turmeric, and is perfect for both sweet and savory applications.
Turkish Oregano Buds (0.5 oz grinder-top jar)
Our zesty and bright oregano buds come from Turkey, where they have to be picked by hand just before they open into oregano flowers. These tiny pine cone-shaped buds have everything we love about oregano, but with a particularly beautiful spicy, hoppy twist.
Fermented White Pepper (2.0 oz grinder-top jar)
Highly prized in Indonesia but rarely found in the US, they add a deep umami flavor and funk to everything they touch. Grind over steak to mimic the flavor of dry aging, over veggies for heat and depth, or in traditional Cantonese and southeast Asia dishes calling for white pepper.
I am obsessed with these spices. They are all so flavorful, and really take dishes to the next level. So into their sourcing as well.
I’ve used these for a few months. I sent this package to my daughter who just moved back into her home. She was sooooo delighted! She started with the Purple Stripe Garlic and is trying all of them over these weeks. So glad she agreed with me…this time.
After cranking through the small bottle in record time we had to upgrade to the 16 oz to feed our habit. This stuff makes everything better and takes every soup or stew's flavor to unprecedented amplitude and depth. I'm stockpiling it before everyone figures this out.
Sometimes when I come into my kitchen I open up one of these spices just to smell it. They are that good. If you are someone who loves to cook, these are going to take your cooking game up a notch without having to change a thing. I feel like I’m getting to eat all my favorite meals in a brand new way. Highly recommend over what you can typically find for dried spices in the stores.
With all of the Burlap & Barrel spices I have seen a huge quality difference vs store bought spices. The smell and flavor are light years ahead of anything store bought. I’ve already recommended to friends and family that they need to get them!
