The dried, bright red berries of Sumac, Rhus coriaria, are a staple in Middle Eastern households, adding a citrus-like note to vegetables, meats and fish. It is usually found alongside herbs and sesame seeds in the popular Middle Eastern spice blend Za’atar, and has become more common in recent years in American and western kitchens as our palates have become more globally attuned. Spice Tribe’s Wild Cured Sumac is harvested from wild plants in Gaziantep, Turkey, and preserved by packing the fresh berries in salt, and then grinding in small batches to achieve a highly stable product with a slightly fermented tang. Incredibly versatile, Sumac is perfect anywhere some brightness is needed. Mix with chiles to add a contrasting zing; sprinkle on salads, vegetables, meats, fish – our Cured Sumac may just become your kitchen’s new secret weapon.
