Our Weeknight Dinner Collection features spices that you should always keep within reach. Use these to kick up the flavor of your everyday cooking, pronto. Just sprinkle on and enjoy. The spices come packed in a beautiful gift box.
The set of 3 spices includes:
Black Urfa Chili (1.8 oz. glass jar)
In southeastern Turkey, you'll find black Urfa chili (or its uncured red variety) on almost every table. It's delicious on kebabs and other grilled meats and veggies, cooked into stews and chilis, in salad dressings, sprinkled on fluffy scrambled eggs, and even mixed into brownies and other chocolate desserts for a little extra depth and a hint of heat.
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. It's a classic Middle Eastern finishing spice, and you can swap it for lemon juice in any recipe or use it 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.
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 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.
The set of 6 spices includes everything above, plus:
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 their delicious flavor as well as their medicinal properties. Our cumin has a savory, penetrating aroma and bright, umami flavor evocative of grilled meats and sweet caramelized onions.
Flowering Hyssop Thyme (1.8 oz. glass jar)
Our Flowering Hyssop Thyme is a very special herb that is only grown in the Middle East, where it is the primary ingredient in the za'atar spice blend, along with sumac and sesame seeds. It has an ancient history of culinary and medicinal usage, and it has a beautiful floral, herbaceous flavor and aroma. Use it in place of regular thyme with roasted chicken, grilled vegetables and tomato sauces.
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.

These spices offer so much more than what we can get from the grocery store. I bought some for myself and then some for my sister. I keep trying to find ways to incorporate the couple spices I bought that are new to us. Love it.
Love the spices from Burlap & Barrel — the depth of flavor is beyond compare. And the experience is enhanced by knowing that the spices are sustainably produced and that sales benefit the local farmers. I could happily buy every spice in the collection.
These spices are wonderful and flavorful. Add so much to my dishes. I love using them and will be ordering again soon.
I absolutely love these spices. all 3 are amazing
I am a chef and I was gifted your spices by my manager at America's Test Kitchen where I work. I was excited to get and try all three but I loved the Urfa chile most of all. Its tangy saltiness surprised me in a wonderful way. I do not like heat but I am not finding the chile flakes spicy hot, just very flavorful and aromatic. I find myself sprinkling them on everything -- rapini pasta sauce with white wine vinegar, boiled potatoes, white rice. As someone who lives in little Armenia (Glendale), I wanted to see what the cured sumac was like and I have to say it is qualitatively different -- and has more depth of flavor -- that what I have eaten on middle Eastern dishes here that traditionally use sumac, such as fattoush or tabbouleh. As for the purple striped garlic, it is beautifully aromatic but very strong so I am still trying to figure out what to pair it with. Maybe fresh, homemade paneer or soft burrata? Thank you for your lovely products. I love your website and what you are doing with spices. All the best, Kaumudi
