Flowering Hyssop Thyme (0.8 oz in a 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. Use it in place of regular thyme with roasted chicken, grilled vegetables, and tomato sauces.
Silk Chili Flakes (1.8 oz glass jar)
Grown and harvested in Kahramanmaras, Turkey, these chili flakes are summery, slightly sweet and gently spicy, reminiscent of summer herbs and roasted tomatoes. So-called because of their smooth, slippery texture, the Silk Chili is the Turkish variety of the famous Aleppo Chili. These are a perfect all-purpose chili flake to be added any time you want to spice up your food.
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.
Cured Sumac (2.3 oz glass jar)
Our spectacular cured sumac grows wild around Gaziantep, Turkey and 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.
Cinnamon Verum (1.8 oz in a glass jar)
Our Zanzibar cinnamon verum (aka Ceylon cinnamon) is bright and sweet, with notes of pine, citrus peel and sea salt. This cinnamon is the inner bark of the cinnamomum verum tree and has an evergreen brightness and woodsy complexity.
New Harvest Turmeric (1.9 oz in a glass jar)
Our turmeric is grown organically on a small farm in southern India by 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, in curries and other dishes as well as in turmeric teas and lattes.
