FLAVORS OF FALL

There are certain spices whose aromas are indelibly linked with fall. Cinnamon's spicy sweetness in warm kitchens is certainly a signifier of cooler temperatures, but it is the pungency of cloves and nutmeg that really arouse autumnal associations. If you want an aromatic treat, try buying these spices whole and grinding them yourself as you need them. But if you can't wait to get right into your fall baking, our ground spices are milled fresh in small batches and will deliver that same olfactory bliss. Opening a jar of our freshly ground cloves, allspice berries, or nutmeg will whisk you immediately into pumpkin season and whet your appetite for pies and lattes.

allspice berries
whole
Multi-dimensional in flavor, this single spice is redolent of a mix of spices including clove, cinnamon, nutmeg, black pepper, and juniper.
cloves
whole
Whole cloves are intensely aromatic dried flower buds that will impart a warm pungency. It has a slight sweetness on the tongue balanced by a spicy bite.
cinnamon sticks
cassia
2 3/4" quills
Cassia cinnamon sticks are rigid making them ideal for aromatic crafting or for use as flavor-imbuing stirrers.
ginger root
ground
nutmeg
whole
Whole nutmeg is a hard ovate seed kernel that is used grated or ground as a warm, slightly sweet spice with a pungent fragrance.
star anise
whole pieces
Star anise pods are as aromatic as they are visually distinctive. Star anise is warm and sweet with an intense licorice flavor that also reveals notes of mint and clove.
mace
ground
Mace's flavor is more subtle than nutmeg, though equally complex. This aromatic spice is warming, semi-sweet, and pungent.
ginger root

slices
Crystallized ginger root is tender and sweet with a spicy bite. Add chopped crystallized ginger to dishes for chewy texture and a bit of sweet spiciness.
