Ten-Second Takeaway

Bourbon vanilla {sourced from Madagascar}, Thai nam prik pao, rosemary, lavender-infused sea salt, and many other gourmet ingredients, pastes, and sauces fill shelf space on Kerala brand Sprig’s e-commerce site.

All Spiced Up

If you’ve always questioned why the best spices and ingredients from around the country always make it to foreign shores, {and all we get are the leftovers}, Kerala brand Sprig is your answer.

The good folks at Sprig bring to you a range of finishing oils {chilli and sesame}, gourmet salts and sugars {demerara sugars infused with vanilla, cinnamon, and brown spices}, gourmet spice blends, a medley of peppers, pastes, and sauces from other countries {wasabi, harissa, nam prik pao and mole}, paprika {sweet and smokey} and more.

While we’ve tried and loved the Six Pepper Medley {a mix of black, white, green, pink, Cubeb, and Sichuan peppers} and the absolutely lovely smokey paprika {a pinch is enough to perk up a pasta or scrambled eggs}, the demerara sugar infused with vanilla came across as a bit too intense for regular tea or coffee—it would probably be more at home being added to cake batter.

We must note here that the demerara sugar came in a beautiful glass jar, and we were fully planning to put it to good use in the future, when the clasp of the lid broke. *Sad face.*

The Rosemary and Lavender-infused Sea Salt was perfect to marinate fish with before being grilled on a hot griddle. All we did was add some freshly ground pepper and a squeeze of lime. The Ginger Teriyaki was a bit too sweet and, shall we say too “gingery”, for our liking. Absolutely no complaints about the nam prik pao, a sweet and fiery Thai chilli paste that we used to stir-fry veggies. We also made a dip with it, with Sprig’s Toasted Sesame Oil {sublime nutty flavours} and mopped it up with potato wedges.

The Little Things

The pepper and salt mills need easier mechanisms to work them. The instructions confused us, and it took some time to figure out how to work the mills. We’re looking forward to easier and better packaging from you, Sprig folks.
