LEMON TANG/ FRESH BERRIES/ UMAMI

Sumac is an amazing finishing spice that adds a burst of fruity citrus tang to everything you sprinkle it on. Our Wild Cured Sumac is cured with salt helping it retain a freshness that is unmatched while also bringing an entirely new funky element to it that makes it a pantry staple.

Sumac makes an excellent an amazing rub for lamb, chicken and fish as well as perfect sprinkled in salads or roasted veggies. We also love it mixed with salt and chile flakes on a cocktail rim.

ORIGIN

Gaziantep, Turkey

In the limestone hills of Gaziantep in southeastern Turkey, sumac is a drought-tolerant plant that grows wildly near pistachio fields. Since there is no formal cultivation, the late-summer harvest is done by villagers, and at times, a single batch of our sumac is produced by over 100 people. The key is knowing which raw materials to accept—we seek out sumac with a sunny tang that turns into a pucker. Rather than sun-drying, the bright red berry is chopped and packed in salt to cure, preserving the fresh-picked floral aroma of the fruit.

TIPS

  • Sumac is a flavor enhancer much like salt and lemon are.
  • Use this spice as a finishing spice so you don’t lose the nuances of tangy fruitiness with long cooking times.
