Sumac spice, with its deep purple red color, has long been used as a flavoring ingredient in Persian cooking and more broadly, throughout the Middle East and Europe. Sumac is a berry that comes from a small shrub. Our naturally organic ground sumac comes in a flakey powder and originates from Gaziantep, Turkey, where instead of being dried, it is chopped and packed in salt to preserve the flavor. The bright acidity of sumac spice bring out a citrusy, herb and tart dimension to any dish. We love including sumac seasoning in zingy lemon dressing, hummus, fattoush or on chicken, fish or any dish needing a citrus burst. As always, buy sumac in small batches for about 3-4 months of use before replenishing.
