Cured Turkish Sumac

This tart, lemony red spice is harvested from shrubs in the Middle East and traditionally sun-dried. This version from Turkey is cured with salt to develop notes of sour cherry and cranberry. It is excellent on kebabs. Interestingly, its use gave rise to the tradition of pink lemonade in America.

Details

Sumac is a wonderfully tart spice that grows wild in the mediterraniean region. Sumac is a household staple in middleeastern countries, much like salt and pepper in the United States. This particular sumac is cured and comes from Turkey specifically. Instead of being dried, this sumac is chopped and packed in salt. This dark red powdered berry had a nutty texture with a tart, sour lemon with a slightly fermented taste. Sumac can be used as you would lemon and salt, in dishes from Chicken, fish, vegetables or hummus.
