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’s heritage really shines through in every jar of EssieSpice.  From the sweetness of the TamarindOH! to the spice of the Mango Chilii Medley, there is something in the collection for everyone.  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.

I met Essie at a Shopify seminar.  It turns out we both have our websites on the same  platform.  I am always excited to meet up and coming artisans. When I heard what Essie was making I immediately asked for her card.  A few samples and kitchen experiments later, I was hooked on her products.  You are really able to taste the care she puts in to each jar.  We are excited to be a part of making Essie’s spice dreams come true.
