Aleppo Chile and Sumac Blend

Rated 4.8 out of 5 stars
12 Reviews

Ancient Halaby is a blend of Aleppo chiles and sumac, a citrus-ey berry native to the Middle East. This blend is a tribute to the resilient and inspiring people of this land. A delicious addition to seafood, chicken and even lamb, it is one of the first spice blends I ever made and will forever be one of my favorites.

Origin & Sourcing

Syria, Lebanon

The sunkissed Aleppo pepper—also known was the halaby pepper—comes from my family’s native Syria. You’ll recognize the prized ingredient as the raisiny background of Ancient Halaby, which also combines other classic Middle Eastern spices like crimson-hued sumac, lemony and bright, plus the unmistakable earthiness of smoked paprika for a robust blend. As a 24-hour dry marinade for a roast leg of lamb, Ancient Halaby makes tantalizing shawarma to rival Lebanon’s legendary vertical spits. As a finishing spice for a traditional fattoush salad, it beams brightness and warmth onto the cool toss of crisp cucumbers, mint, scallions and parsley. And as a cocktail rimmer mixed with our crushed pink Peruvian salt sourced from the Andes, it gives a famous Baja-born libation—the margarita—blessings from age-old civilizations.

Tips for Success

Cooking tips from our chefs

Clumping is normal as we don’t use anti caking agents or salt. If clumping occurs simply break apart with your hands before seasoning. Try not to pour spices out of the jar over a steaming pot or pan as the steam can get in the jar and cause further clumping. For maximum flavor make sure to use with salt. Ground spices can burn quickly so make sure to use oil to help distribute the heat more evenly when making a rub.

    Pretty good but could be more flavorful, it’s just spicy

    Could be mixed with something else for a deeper flavor besides just spicy. If you’re using this on chicken, I would highly suggest adding salt and pepper as well.

    I put this on everything

    This is the one spice mix I cannot cook without. I use when grilling, in marinades, sauteing vegetables, in salad dressings, and on and on

    Ancient Halaby

    So far I have used it for spicing up burgers made with ground chicken. It was very good. Also I used the California Love to grill shrimp that I used later to make Shrimp Fried Rice. It was the best fried rice I ever made!

    So Good!

    I love this blend on chicken thighs. I sprinkle both sides with the blend plus some Kashmiri chili cause I love spicy food. The taste of this blend is very yummy!

Here are just a few ideas! Rub for chicken, lamb or seafood, roast vegetables with olive oil and lemon, Mediterranean style sofrito, stews, Mediterranean and Middle Eastern food, mix with yogurt to make a quick sauce.

Where does the name come from?

This blend was inspired by my Arab ancestors from Lebanon and Syria. My grandfather passed away when I was 9 and many of the recipes and stories about our ancestors went with him. I use food as a way to learn about my ancestors. Halab is the Arabic for Aleppo which was one of the largest trading hubs in Syria during the spice trade. We use Aleppo pepper as the base of this blend also known as Halaby pepper. The chile sumac blend is a homage to my Levantine ancestors.
