We know what you're thinking: what on planet earth is a black lime? Follow us to Guatemala, where this spice is harvested. Limes grow heavy in the blistering sun, get plucked from trees, and are left to oxidize (aka turn black). This gives them a more savory quality. Cooking with black lime is a real treat. And if you need a little guidance, look to Persian households. Dishes like saffron chicken and lamb stew wouldn't be what they are without the unique spice.

Burlap & Barrel partners directly with small farms to source single-origin, biodynamically-grown spices.

The glass jar and metal lid are curbside recyclable, once separated. The plastic shrink band and sifter top are recyclable through TerraCycle by following our special instructions.
These are general guidelines for broadly-recyclable materials. Check with your local recycler to confirm what they take.

How it does good

Making a positive social impact and a low environmental impact

Burlap & Barrel sources their spices directly from farmer cooperatives and small farms. They visit each of these farms, spending time with the employees to learn about the economic, social, and environmental implications of their methods. Every decision they make is fueled by their goal to end inequality and exploitation in the food industry. They do this by connecting small farms to high-value markets, educating consumers about the impact of product traceability, and sourcing unique foods that are grown using biodynamic and organic techniques.
