Spices

We grow a variety of spices. Contact us about ordering wholesale shipments of these fresh spices.

Nutmeg and Mace —The tropical evergreen tree Nutmeg, is native to Molucca Islands of Indonesia. We have found it grows especially well here on the Hamakua Coast of the Big Island. It produces two spices, mace and nutmeg. Nutmeg is the seed kernel inside the fruit and mace is the lacy covering (aril) on the kernel. Both spices are strongly aromatic, resinous and warm in taste. We can ship the whole nutmeg without the mace to the mainland.

 

Cloves — Cloves are the dried, unopened flower buds of the evergreen clove tree. This small reddish-brown flower bud resemble a tiny nail head. All parts of the clove tree are highly aromatic. Dried flower buds, which gives a sharp and spicy flavor, either whole or ground are used for culinary, medicinal and other uses.

 

WAG bay leafBay Leaf — The bay tree is indigenous to Asia Minor, from where it spread to the Mediterranean and then to other countries with similar climates. Fresh Bay is good with all kinds of foods: vegetables, soups, meats, sauces, and in pickling!

 

 

Curry Leaf — The leaves are highly valued as seasoning in southern and west-coast Indian cooking, and Sri Lankan cooking especially in curries, usually fried along with the chopped onion in the first stage of the preparation.
