The 6-spice collection includes:

  • Our savory, sweet Purple Shallot Powder adds umami depth and allium sweetness to myriad dishes, from rice and noodles to stews and braises. The powder is a convenient substitute for fresh shallots — substitute 1 tsp powder for a fresh shallot, or use in place of onion powder in rice or any dish that you'd use fresh shallots in.

  • Black Lime is a versatile ingredient with a famously savory and tart flavor. Ours comes from a family farm in Guatemala. The limes are sun-dried, then ground into an easy-to-use powder. 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.

  • Our Black Urfa 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 bright red color, then are laid out under sheets in the hot summer sun. This technique cures the pepper in its own juices and gives it a deep umami flavor and beautiful dark color.

    Urfa, Turkey

  • Our Wild Mountain Cumin has a savory, penetrating aroma and bright, umami flavor evocative of grilled meats and sweet caramelized onions. The tiny, oblong seeds are hand-picked by foragers in the Hindu Kush mountains of Afghanistan. The seeds are smaller and softer than the cumin you may be used to, and they do not need to be ground before use.

  • Herbes de Provence is an iconic blend of hardy, aromatic herbs and a cornerstone of French cooking. Unlike every other product in the US, ours is truly grown and blended in Provence itself, by a cooperative of farmers who cultivate organic heirloom herbs and craft a perfectly balanced, traditional mélange. Add to tomato sauces, roasts, pan sauces and any other dish for a boost of savory, fragrant aromatics.

  • Black Mineral Salt (commonly called kala namak) is a classic ingredient in many South Asian dishes and is used in the practice of Ayurveda. The salt is mined in the Himalayas and fired in a kiln at extremely high temperatures, hot enough to melt the salt and give it a scorched black color. The heat changes the chemical composition, bringing out its beloved savory, tart and eggy aroma and flavor.

The peppers are picked ripe, air-cured in mesh bags, dehydrated, ground and blended with sweet paprika in small batches.

The fruit turns yellow as it ripens on the vine and has a softer and sweeter flavor that makes it a perfect upgrade to standard green cardamom.

Mesquite trees regenerate ecosystems and provide sustainable livelihoods for rural communities, and their fruit has a rich, comforting flavor.
