The best-quality nutmeg from the Moluccas Islands in Indonesia are harvested at the start of the rainy season when the ripe yellow fruit is split open to reveal the nutmeg seed. The mace covering the nut is separated by hand, and the seeds are sun-dried before they’re dipped in a solution and further dried to preserve their luster. Our high-grade Nutmeg has a sweet, camphorous aroma with hints of clove and a bittersweet, woody flavor. Net weight: 1.7 oz.
Our best-quality Star Anise is harvested in the fall in China’s southern Guangxi region. The star-shaped fruit is picked by hand so that flowers and young fruit aren’t damaged. They’re boiled and stirred constantly until the fruit turns completely yellow, then spread on bamboo mats, dried in the sun and flipped occasionally for several days. The star anise becomes shiny brown-red, with a spicy-sweet licorice flavor more potent than aniseed. Net weight: 0.6 oz.
Our Cloves are selected by hand for only the plumpest, uniformly bright-brown buds. These superior buds are hand-picked later in the harvest season under optimal weather conditions, plucked just as they’re about to open and laid out in the sun on palm mats, the best method for drying. Well-dried cloves break easily and are oil-rich, with a pungently sweet, fruity, sharp flavor and a slight numbing effect on the tongue. Net weight: 1.4 oz.
Cinnamon Powder Vietnamese
A spice traceable to ancient Phoenician origins, cinnamon is harvested from an evergreen tree belonging to the Laurel family. After collecting only the most delicate strips of the inner bark of the young cinnamon tree shoots, we sun dry and firmly hand roll them to create our richly fragrant, golden brown Cinnamon “quills,” with edges neatly joined end to end to achieve a uniform thickness and length. Then, the quills are freshly ground to order. Net weight: 1.5 oz.
