Our Purple Stripe Garlic powder, grown in the mountains of northern Vietnam, is savory and sweet, and its flavor adds depth and complexity to everything it touches. The powder can be used in place of fresh garlic, or as an upgrade to standard garlic powder. Add it to tomato sauces, stews, salad dressings or simply sprinkle it onto stir-fries or pizza. The rich, buttery aroma is a welcome addition to cooked dishes, breads and even as a sprinkle topping for pizza!
This is an heirloom variety with a purple stripe on its papery skin and small bulbs.
We've partnered with DACE, a social enterprise in Vietnam, to connect with the farmers growing our Purple Stripe Garlic.
The garlic is grown by communities of Hmong farmers in Vietnam's northern highlands, who are learning to grow higher-value crops and transitioning to organic and regenerative agricultural methods. We're honored to support them in that work, and to share their deeply flavorful garlic with you!

Never too much garlic!
Tonight I opened my new jar of Purple Stripe Garlic, generously adding it to freshly-made mashed-then-whipped red potatoes, along with Drumstick Lemongrass, Flowering Hyssop Thyme, and a touch of Zanzibar Black Pepper. It was Delicious! This Spiciest Woman in the Neighborhood is loving all of my new Burlap&Barrel spices!
Purple Stripe Garlic, Black Urfa Chile, and Black Lime
Spurred to try these spices because of a recipe from the amazing Chef Maya-Camille of Justice of the Pies, I wasn’t disappointed. The Purple Stripe Garlic has a real depth and balance of flavor, the Black Lime adds an acidic kick, and for me, the star was the Black Urfa chile — a little oily, a lengthy spiciness that doesn’t have a painful edge, just an addictive flavor. As a bonus, the service was great. When my original box of three arrived, the plastic safety strip on the Purple Garlic had come off, and I felt a little nervous about using it. Burlap & Barrel promptly sent a new one, which arrived in a couple of days. I love the ethos of the company too, as it strives to use only responsibly sourced ingredients.
This has become my husbands "go to" for most anything he is cooking.
Toasty garlic magic
Happily surprised at the toasty, nutty flavor that's way less sharp than standard garlic powder, rather more like brown butter garlic. Totally a game changer!
The garlic powder was easy to add to meals and snacks as opposed to the time consuming tasks of mincing or grating it.
