Origin

Gaziantep, Turkey

In the limestone hills of Gaziantep in southeastern Turkey, sumac is a drought-tolerant plant that grows wildly near pistachio fields. Since there is no formal cultivation, the late-summer harvest is done by villagers, and at times, a single batch of our sumac is produced by over 100 people. The key is knowing which raw materials to acceptโ€”we seek out sumac with a sunny tang that turns into a pucker. Rather than sun-drying, the bright red berry is chopped and packed in salt to cure, preserving the fresh-picked floral aroma of the fruit.

Tips for Success

  • Sumac is a flavor enhancer much like salt and lemon are.
  • Use this spice as a finishing spice so you donโ€™t lose the nuances of tangy fruitiness with long cooking times.
