Set of 3 Spices:
Wild Mountain Cumin (1.5 oz. glass jar)
Our Wild Mountain 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 cumon has a savory, penetrating aroma and bright, umami flavor evocative of grilled meats and sweet caramelized onions.
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.
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, this is an heirloom variety not widely harvested or exported, and exemplifies the intense sweetness and spiciness for which Vietnamese cinnamon is prized. Use it in place of Saigon or other cinnamons in pastries and baked goods, or sprinkle into rich, savory meat or tomato-based dishes.
PLUS a free set of two Burlap & Barrel kitchen towels!
Set of 7 Spices includes everything above, PLUS:
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.
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.
Sweet Pepper Paprika (1.8 oz. glass jar)
Our Sweet Pepper Paprika comes from southeastern Turkey, where peppers are a way of life. This is a sweeter variety of our Silk Chili Flakes, with all the flavor of sweet peppers and none of the heat. It's a perfect alternative to other unsmoked or Hungarian-style paprikas. Add it to soups and stews, or use as a rub for meat or vegetables.
Ea Sar Black Pepper (1.8 oz. grinder-top jar)
Our Ea Sar Black Pepper is a combination of two heirloom pepper varieties, Vĩnh Linh (grown by Dūng) and Trâu Xanh (grown by Thanh). Together, the two types of sun-dried peppercorns hit a perfect balance of fragrance and flavor.
The spices were especially pungent, tasty, and plentiful, and the dishtowels were a handy extra.
We love all of the spices! I ordered as a gift for my partner of course, knowing I’d get to try them too. Some of the dishes he has tried with these spices has been outstanding and so flavorful! He and I both agree that these turned out to be the best Christmas gift!
Could not be happier with these spices. Every meal is a little better with them,
We've only really started using the lime and the chili, but they're AMAZING! Complex, deep in flavor, and easy to think of SO many applications.
I have two and two others got the rest, and by all reports are both delighted with the spices and intriqued to learn of the sourcing and double good done by purchasing from you!
