Our Purple Stripe Garlic Powder comes from an heirloom variety with a purple stripe on its papery skin and bulbs about half the size of what you're used to seeing.
It's grown by a group of farmers in the mountains of northern Vietnam and has a savory and sweet flavor profile that adds depth and complexity to everything it touches. Add it to tomato sauces, stews, salad dressings or simply sprinkle it onto stir-fries or pizza.

I didn't know how much I need this until I started using it. I put it in everything. Last night it went into a quick vegetable stir-fry I was making for dinner. The flavor is perfect - not harsh at all like other powdered garlic.
I'm a big garlic lover, I believe it makes any dish better. This purple stripe garlic has an interesting sweetness that tones down the `garlicyness`, making it less spicy. I enjoyed it so much, it was gone in no time. The packaging can really be improved, there's no sifter and dosing takes a learning curve. I ended up reusing the sifter from other spices from Burlap & Barrel.
I love cooking with the garlic and cumin. My recipes have much more fresh flavor and truly make a difference. I have bought both of these spices for my foodie friends who rave how good they are.
I use garlic powder in literally everything. This is the first time I have ever actually gone through an entire bottle and I did it in less than 2 months. It’s that good! Way more fragrant and fresh then store bought. Highly recommend!
