The teams at JOI and Burlap & Barrel got together to figure out the absolute best possible single origin spices to go with their plant bases. We've come up with the Plant Power Collection, which comes packed in a beautiful gift box.
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 millennia. The same species as Saigon cinnamon (cinnamomum loureiroi), Royal Cinnamon is an heirloom variety not widely harvested or exported, and exemplifies the intense sweetness and spiciness for which Vietnamese cinnamon is prized.
Morogoro Cacao (1.75 oz glass jar)
Our raw cacao powder is made from organic cacao beans from the famous Kokoa Kamili cooperative. The beans are not roasted before grinding - they're fermented and sun-dried for a fruity, bright flavor. It's a fruity and nutty cacao that's great for sweets but is particularly delicious as a savory ingredient as an alternative to paprika in stews, chilis, 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, in curries and other dishes as well as in turmeric teas and lattes.
