Sumac

Rated 5.0 out of 5
Based on 22 reviews

The recipe for hummus at Israel's Abu Hassan restaurant has been a secret since the 1950s, but its presentation is a spectacle. A server with a big spoon scoops chickpea puree onto a plate, then spins the spoon and plate in opposite directions to spread it. A drizzle of olive oil and healthy sprinkle of lemony-tart sumac powder completes it. Visit our blog to learn more about sumac and see sumac substitutes.

Details

Sumac once served as the tart, acidic element in cooking prior to the introduction of lemons by the Romans. 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. Sumac is a household staple in middleeastern countries, much like salt and pepper in the United States. The plant is actually a member of the cashew family, just like pink peppercorns are. 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. Ingredients: Sumac, salt.

The secret ingredient to the best Hummus

Purchased this mostly to use when making hummus, but also other Mediterranean dishes. The very first thing my spouse said when they finished dinner with the hummus with sumac was it was the best one I've ever made. All the other ones were "really, really good", but this one was "amazing". Well worth it.

Oh, sumac! I love its color and the boost of flavor it gives to roasted vegetables.

Sumac and sweet potato are great together--especially roasted. I also love it added to corn at the end of a hot-pan browning sear.

Wonderful Sumac

This was a new spice for me. I ordered the sumac and Aleppo peppers to use in the spiced pork tenderloin recipe that you posted. Let me say that it was delicious. Very nice flavor blend and so tender. Definitely a keeper. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Sumac

Love using sumac on chicken. Lends an herb lemon flavor to the dish. Great on roasted potatoes too.
