sumac Salad & drinks

If you’ve ever dined in a Middle Eastern restaurant, you may have noticed the dark red powder that dusts everything from salads to meat to baklava. It’s sumac, and it packs a wallop of tart, lemony, almost vinegar-like flavor that brightens salad dressings, popcorn, even Bloody Marys’.
While it has a diverse flavour profile, sumac blends surprisingly well with other spices such as allspice, chili, thyme and cumin. It’s also used to make Za’atar, a Middle Eastern spice blend which includes oregano, thyme and sesame seeds.

It’s a spice every kitchen should have, and one that isn’t as hard to come by as you might think. This dry red powder isn’t a true spice — it is harvested from the fruit of the sumac, or sumach flower which is a member of the cashew family. Although it’s prevalent in Middle Eastern cooking, the plant hails mainly from subtropical and temperate areas in Africa and North America as well as Turkey or Yemen.




Suggested Use

Just sprinkle it on your food as it compliments the flavors of everything from hearty grilled meats, to fresh vegetables, to delicate desserts. It can be used as a substitute for lemon juice or vinegar, and has a less pungent, overpowering flavor than its acidic counterparts. It can be used as part of a meat rub or marinade, to enhance the natural fats with its bright flavors,


Other Uses:

  • Marinades

  • Salad
  • Dessert

Keep in a clean, dry and cool place. It is recommended to keep in the fridge once open.
