Middle Eastern Collection (6 Pack)
This versatile collection of spices and seasonings comes from some of the oldest cuisines in the world and are staples in Middle Eastern cooking. Add to meat dishes, rice, vegetables, and baked goods to bring home the flavors of the Fertile Crescent.
- Hot and aromatic with a touch of sweetness, "Berbere" literally translates to "hot". It goes great with lamb or lentil dishes, but for an easy treat try it sprinkled on some popcorn.
- Spicy, herbaceous, and bright. Harissa is a darling of the spice world as of late, and a staple on North African tables. Goes great on vegetables, in soups, and in egg dishes. Or, use it as a rub for roasted or grilled meats
- Roasted Cumin Powder
- Without cumin, we’d have no savory dal, tajine, or chili. Hundreds of beloved recipes get their distinctive tang, punchy heat, and tawny color from cumin. Made from the thin, tiny seeds of the delicate cumin plant (a relative of dill and caraway), the spice originated in Asia (hence its appearance in the famous Xi’an noodle dishes), but was widely dispersed via the Silk Road, and used as an antibacterial addition to foods. Roasting adds depth and a toasted undertone.
- Sumacs are some of the prettiest plants in the wild, producing crimson-red fruits nestled amongst spiraling leaves. That might be why they drew the attention of early Middle Eastern, Arab, and Central Asian cultures, who turned the dried fruits into oxblood-colored powder used as a leather dye and garnish. It has a tart, wonderfully sour flavor, and stunning visual appeal when sprinkled over swirled plates of baba ghanoush or grilled flatbreads.
- Ground Turmeric
- A longtime staple as a fabric dye and ingredient in Ayurvedic cooking and medicine (since 500 BC!), turmeric is currently enjoying a huge resurgence in popularity due to its anti-inflammatory and digestive qualities. A rhizome that looks similar to ginger root when pulled out of the ground, dried and powdered turmeric has stunning marigold color and earthy taste that pairs well with citrus or honey.
- Complex, zesty, tart, and floral. With sumac, sesame, cumin, and herbs, it's a quintessential spice mix of the Middle east. Try it on roasted vegetables, savory yogurt sauces, or mix with olive oil to brush on flatbread.
