Why we love it

Where is this cumin harvested? In a land far far away. The Hindu Kush mountains in Afghanistan are remote and relatively untouched by humans, which apparently means the spices that grow there are a thousand times more delicious and potent. You'll love cooking with this savory, bright cumin. We're particularly fond of adding it to lentil soup or sprinkling it on grilled chicken for a pita sandwich.

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. Their spices are also dried in the sun.
  • 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

From lentil soups to chicken kebabs, this versatile spice has a pungent, intoxicating flavor.

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.
