Get to know the incredible spice blend, Garam Masala, that Burlap & Barrel developed in collaboration with Floyd Cardoz, the celebrated Indian-born American chef. They were released with his wife and business partner, Barkha, as a tribute to his love for the cuisines of India and his passion for sharing them with the world. Ingredients: Cinnamon, star anise, bay leaf, black cardamom, yellow cardamom, mace, cloves

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. This is an heirloom variety with a purple stripe on its papery skin and bulbs about half the size of what you're used to seeing. The rich, buttery aroma is a welcome addition to cooked dishes, breads and even as a sprinkle topping for pizza! 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. 

Burlap & Barrel's spectacular Za'atar is blended at origin in Palestine with locally grown herbs, sesame seeds and sumac. Za'atar is a blend named after its key ingredient, a Levantine species of oregano that flourishes in the region's characteristic arid conditions, and it also includes sesame seeds, sumac and other ingredients, depending on who's making it. Good za'atar tastes savory, deeply herbal, piney, nutty, tart and peppery. 

Cured Sumac grows wild around Gaziantep, Turkey. It has a bright, sour, salty and slightly fermented flavor that comes from being packed in salt. This is a very popular spice among professional chefs and home cooks alike. Cured Sumac is a classic Middle Eastern finishing spice. 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.

Drumstick Lemongrass is sweet and bright, with lush citrus overtones. The name is a translation of the Vietnamese, and it comes from the shape of the plant, which tapers from a wide base like a chicken leg. After being harvested, the lemongrass stalks are gently dried and ground into powder for maximum surface area (and convenience!). The lemongrass powder can be used anywhere you'd use a stalk of lemongrass. Add just a little bit to marinades, soups, stews, stir-fries and sweets for a citrus perfume.

New Harvest Turmeric has an exceptionally sweet, floral flavour without the metallic bitterness found in lower-quality turmeric. This turmeric is grown organically in southern India by Dr. Salunhke, an expert farmer specializing in sustainable agricultural techniques. It is perfect for both sweet and savoury applications, in curries and other dishes as well as in turmeric teas and lattes.

Its high curcumin content (4%) makes it ideal for both culinary and nutritional uses. Add it to sauces, stews, salad dressing and baked goods for bright colour, depth of flavour and wellness.
