Cured Sumac - 2.3 ounces
2.3 ounces in a glass jar
This spectacular cured sumac grows wild around Gaziantep, Turkey. Rather than undergoing the usual drying process, it’s chopped and preserved in salt. The resulting tart, salty and lightly fermented flavor is extremely versatile. The rich scarlet hue is a bonus. Burlap & Barrel is a New York-based spice company working towards ending inequality and exploitation in food systems that disenfranchise skilled farmers.
A classic Middle Eastern finishing spice, sumac can sub in for lemon juice in any recipe. It adds a citrusy brightness to salads, fish, meat or dips. Ottolenghi is a fan.
