Essiespice is the creation of Spice Mixologist Essie Bartels. Essie began cooking with her mother as a little girl making recipes that were passed down through the generations. Every jar of Essiespice is a tribute to Africa, the land of Essie’s birth and the place of her culinary inspiration. Each jar contains an Adinkra symbol, a visual symbol created by the Akan people of Ghana representing various concepts. Essie created these sauces to add a bunch of flavor with little effort to your cooking. We know they will soon become a staple in your pantry.
