Sumac spice is derived from the dried and ground berries of a flowering plant that belongs to the anacardiaceae family, native to North America, East Asia and other temperate climates around the globe. The name of the plant, sumac, came from the Aramaic language and means red, because of its red colour. This colourful spice adds a distinct zesty, tangy, lemon like flavour to dishes, and is often added to other spice blends including zaatar.
Sumac lends colour and tang to any dish, and is often used in Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cuisine in dressings, marinades and spice rubs. Sprinkle over salads, roasted veggies, dips and avocado or over all types of meat or even tofu.
