The robust, fragrant spice blend known as quatre épices, or “four spices,”dates back to the European courts of the middle ages and is a favorite staple in French and Middle Eastern kitchens. A mixture of pepper, ginger, cloves and nutmeg, it adds rich flavor to soups and stews, vegetables, cakes, and pâtés and other charcuterie. Our Quatre Épices is distinct, made with our aromatic, mildly piquant white peppercorns.
Quatre épices 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.
