Crushed sumac berries are intensely fruity with tart notes. The striking red berries grow wild in the Mediterranean, where they are delicately handpicked off the shrubs and dried in the sun. Just like salt and pepper, sumac is a staple throughout the Middle East to season dishes.
Crushed sumac berries are a focal point in Turkish, Lebanese and Arabian cuisine where they are used to add a citrus flavour to chicken, salads, fish, vegetables, rice and eggs. The berries are also a key ingredient in the spice blend zahtar. Try sprinkling over hummus or use in a marinade. 33g
