Sumac comes from the seeds of a small tree bearing the same name, which are grounded into a red – brownish powder, with a slightly sour taste.

Sumac is one of the main ingredients in the spice mix Zaatar along with sesame seeds and dried thyme. With its clean tasting citrus flavours and balanced mix of fruity and tart, it adds that essential brightness and zing to grilled chicken or fish, blanched vegetables, or rice. It’s superb over salads, tomatoes, cucumbers even raw onions.
