Sumac, ground


Often used in classic Middle Eastern cooking, ground sumac is simply the powder from the fruit of the sumac shrub. Its slightly tangy, citrus-like tones are the perfect accompaniment to roasted chicken and fish, as well as a great addition to hummus, cheese dips, and yogurt-based sauces. It also gives dishes a nice reddish color.

Sumac is made by grinding and sieving the deep brick-red berries of the sumac bush, or “staghorn sumac,” and  is ideal for adding a tart flavor to any recipe. Its berry-like, lemony profile gives all the flavor of citrus without the acidic nature; where some cultures might use vinegar or lemon juice, sumac is instead the go-to option in Middle Eastern cuisines to add brightness to any dish. Sumac is typically used in spice rubs, such as za’atar, or added to tabbouleh salads. Its flavor profile works really well for delicate proteins such as chicken and fish, and is a great addition to dips and sauces, either hummus, yogurt, or cheese-based. Contains salt, to accentuate flavor and prevent clumping. Naturally vegan and gluten-free.
