Aji Amarillo Chile Pepper$5.00 – $20.50

Allspice$5.00 – $18.00
Native to Jamaica, this “new” spice made an appearance in European and Mediterranean dishes in the 16th century. It smells like a combination of Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Cloves and Pepper, so the English coined it “Allspice.” Our allspice is stored in a climate-controlled, oxygen-depleted environment before milling to maximize the retention of essential oils. This locks in the strongest flavor and aroma possible.
Add to cooked fruits and relishes, poached fish, and braised meats. Uses include Caribbean Jerk seasonings, Palestinian dishes, Middle Eastern stews, German sausages, English cakes, and American pies.

Ancho Chile Pepper$4.25 – $18.75
The Ancho Chile is the dried version of the Poblano Pepper and the most popular dried chile in Mexican cooking. The sweetest of dried peppers, with deep, rich berry flavors, mild bitterness, and mild to medium hotness, Ancho is frequently used as the base flavor of sauce and spice mixes like dry rubs or mole. We stem and partially seed our Anchos by hand before milling to provide the strongest Chile flavors without being overpowered by excessive heat. Try replacing paprika with Ancho Chile Powder in any recipe to bring a fuller, earthier Chile flavor and beckoning for you to take another bite.
Anise Seed$4.75 – $15.75
Repairs to the London Bridge were said to be partially paid for by taxes and tolls placed on Anise Seed by King Edward in 1305. In folklore, Anise is believed to stave off nightmares when placed near the bed.
