Burlap and Barrel's Purple Stripe 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, with notes of brown butter, toasted hazelnut, and asafoetida, that adds depth and complexity to everything it touches. Add it to tomato sauces, stews, salad dressings, or simply sprinkle it onto stir-fries or pizza. Please note that the jars are filled by weight rather than by volume, and that the garlic may have settled in the container after packing.

Burlap & Barrel sources their single origin spices directly from farmer cooperatives and small farms, bypassing brokers and middlemen who drive prices up and quality down. Founders Ethan Frisch and Ori Zohar visit farms personally and spend time with farmers, learning firsthand about the economic, social, and cultural factors behind their farming methods. Burlap & Barrel then supports these farmers by providing purchase commitments to give greater financial security, sharing knowledge from across their global farmer network, and expanding on-site value-added activities such as sorting, grinding, and packaging to increase farmer revenue. Burlap & Barrel works with their partner farmers to identify unique varietals of spices that are often overlooked by the commodity spice industry – as well as valuable byproducts – to maximize the farms' earnings. Plus, in selling these spices, Burlap and Barrel highlights the areas they come from, bringing attention to sustainability and ecological needs and practices in other parts of the world.
Keep in a dry place away from heat and light. While spices will stay good for a long time, they don't necessarily "get better with age," so use them generously and often! Read more about Burlap & Barrel's spices HERE.
