MAHLEPI SEEDS Sale
Mahlepi, also known as mahlab or mahlebi, is an aromatic spice that has been used for centuries in the Middle East and Mediterranean. It is made from the cherry stones of a specific tree called the St Lucy cherry or Mahaleb. The cherry stones are cracked to extract the seeds, which are ground to a powder. Mahlepi has a unique almond sweet nutty and slightly bitter flavour. It is famously used to prepare Greek Easter bread, Tsoureki. Mahlepi pairs extremely well with flavours of star anise, aniseed and caraway.
