Harissa, from the Arabic for “break into pieces,” is a heady, brick-red North African hot sauce, traditionally made by pounding chilies in a mortar. Dried chilies are soaked, then pounded with garlic, caraway and coriander seeds and mixed with oil. Our nuanced version is a dry spice mix with medium heat to which spearmint is added for a refreshing finish. Add extra virgin olive oil for a paste or use as a rub or garnish.
Harissa now also comes in our special Longevity jar made of thick, durable, unique glass which blocks out damaging light that causes decay. This airtight, light-proof jar blocks out harmful air, moisture, and light, protecting our spices and preserving their freshness. Our Longevity jar not only looks beautiful and elegant, but it's also completely reusable, eco-friendly, and will last for years. All spices in the Longevity collection come in refill packs, so you only need to get the Longevity jar once for each spice and then just get the refill packs when the spice runs out, reducing waste and creating a sustainable solution for your kitchen.
