No, not PEMDAS, the mathematical formula. Pemba, the little island famous for its cloves. Packed with bright intensity and tingly sweetness, these things are truly the main character.

Grown and handpicked by spice farmer Bwana Mohammad from Burlap & Barrel’s partner cooperative in the Zanzibar islands of Tanzania, these Pemba cloves have come a long way to your kitchen. Zanzibar has some of the oldest clove trees in the world, and their cloves have a significantly higher percentage of essential oils (15-18%) than cloves from other parts of the world. And with notes of brown sugar and pineapple, these cloves are a special addition to recipes like pumpkin spice cookies and chicken korma.

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

The glass jar and metal lid are curbside recyclable, and the plastic sifter is 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.
