Our spectacular Cured Sumac grows wild around Gaziantep, Turkey, where instead of being dried, it’s chopped and packed in salt to preserve it. It has a bright, sour, salty and slightly fermented flavor, and is one of our most popular spices among professional chefs and home cooks alike.
Cured Sumac is a classic Middle Eastern finishing spice. Swap it for lemon juice in any recipe or use it to add character and brightness to salads, fish, meat or dips. It also makes a perfect topping for anything from hummus to salad to roasted veggies or meat to scrambled eggs.
“Tart and vivacious, invigorating citrus-like finish.” Bon Appetit

Amazing ****! So terrific in fish rubs.
I use this frequently and really enjoy. So glad I was introduced to all of the B&B spices I was unfamiliar with until now. Thanks B&B! Keep it coming! :-)
I originally ordered sumac because of it's health benefits. I was puzzled as to what I would actually prepare with it. But once I started sprinkling it on dishes - I really enjoyed it. My first experiment with on Avacado Toast. It quickly became one of my favorite spices! Any where you might use a little citrus is a place to use this one! I don't allow myself to run out of this spice.
love it especially mixed with sumac
I used this on grilled cauliflower and my wife absolutely loved it. She asked me what I put on it that tasted so good and I told her "Sumac". She looked at me and said "it's really delicious". I've used it on mashed potatoes and grilled summer squash and it seems to go with practically everything that is lightly flavored otherwise. I used it in my homemade Za'tar seasoning and it was better than the normal dried and ground stuff. The only sumac I use now.
