Spice Profile: Sumac


Sumac is a bush, native to the Middle East, that produces red berries, which are dried and ground into a powder. Before the Romans introduced lemons to the area, the spice was used in Europe to add tartness to many dishes


Sumac has a tangy lemony flavor, but more balanced and less tart than lemon juice.
