Why we love it

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.

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.

  • responsible sourcing

    Burlap & Barrel uses fair trade practices when working with small, international farms.
  • low carbon footprint

    Ingredients are sourced directly, shortening the supply chain and reducing the distance the product has to travel.
  • recyclable packaging

    The glass jars and lids are recyclable.
  • supporting key causes

    Burlap & Barrel works to bring positive social impact both in the areas where they source and at home for their local organizations. As a Public Benefits Corporation, they publish annual Imact Reports that share updates on their social mission.

How to use it

Stews, soups, meats, and veggies will never be the same thanks to this tart, savory spice.

When you're done...

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.

Avocado Toast's Best Friend

Hi Hive! It's Kate from the Merch team. I tried this product purely out of curiosity. Sure, I like limes in drinks or squeezed on fish, but I was totally unfamiliar with ground, dried lime. Little did I know what I'd been missing! This spice brings just the right sharpness without the liquid of a fresh lime, making it the perfect topping for avocado toast - with, dare I say it, a drizzle of Enzo's Bold Olive Oil and a few flake's of Jacoben's Flake Salt!
