Sumac

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 completes it.

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. 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. This product contains sodium.

The Best Sumac in the US

The spice house Sumac is the best Sumac I have found in the US. In my opinion, it is comparable to iranian sumac, which is supposed to be the best in the world. This sumac is fresh, vibrant with flavor, and rich in color. Use it on cooked rice, meats, and vegetables. Add it to salads or salad dressings. Or, do what my daughter does: eat a small bowl of it for a sour snack packed with antioxidants. Highly recommended!

Fresh. full of great flavor!

This was my first Spice House purchase. Wow, I am very impressed with the spice quality and overall customer experience. The website is easy to navigate and the online ordering process was smooth and without issue. My spice packet arrived quickly and I was pumped to make my chicken schwarma salad recipe. Both my husband and I loved it! Thanks, Spice House.

Beautiful pop of color and lemony tang

Versatile...we use this on everything. Adds a bright color to finish any dish. Excellent for a meat rub, seasoning for vegetables, and making hummus special.

Sumac is BEAUTIFUL

Sumac is a dark, rosy red spice, and its tangy, lemon flavor matches its beautiful rich color. It brightens the flavor of green vegetables such as asparagus and broccoli. I especially like it mixed with tumeric and black pepper on soft boiled eggs. It's my current favorite spice! I was recently disappointed to discover salt listed as an extra ingredient which, as one who tries to limit salt intake, will change the freedom with which I have been sprinkling sumac on almost everything. Five stars minus one for salt.

So happy!

My latest food fascination is Mediterranean and living in a small town is West Texas makes it highly unlikely to find spices. I was so happy to find Spice House! The Flatpacks are just the right amount to try new flavors, are convenient, easy to store, and economical (free shipping). The aroma from these small bags is amazing! My Mediterranean Egg Salad was delicious and I can’t wait to find more recipes to use the Sumac!
