Sumac by Rooted Spices

Sumac is a sour and tangy spice which has benefited from 'The Ottolenghi Effect’. Though it's often used as one of many ingredients in a salad, it is a fantastic finishing spice, used like a tangy-sharp salt to finish grilled meats or roasted vegetables or a dish of homemade hummous. 

Think of it as a lemon substitute, using sumac's sharp tang as a souring agent ... though you'll notice how the ground powder dances on the tongue, making it a unique spice. 

Our ground sumac comes from the berries of Turkish sumac trees. It's great in Middle Eastern style dishes like chickpea salads and is also a key ingredient in Palestine's national dish: chicken musakhan. Once you've got to grip with the flavour profile there's nothing to stop you getting experimental – from sumac squid to sumac-salted chocolate truffles. 

Our sumac comes from Turkey, where the berries are grown in beautiful, torch shaped clusters which become sticky as they ripen. The sumac berries are picked, dried and ground according to traditional preparation.
