Ground Sumac, derived from grinding the berries of the Sumac plant, is a lush, red spice traditionally found in Middle-Eastern and Indian dishes.
This herb imbues its dish with a tart, sharp lemon-like flavor while avoiding the acidic qualities that come from using citrus plants. It is a common component of Za’atar, a Mid-East spice blend and it was the primary plant used when needing a sour taste up until the introduction of the lemon by the Romans.
Sumac also has properties as a good antimicrobial, an antioxidant, and in relieving symptoms of indigestion.
It mixes well with garlic, onions, as well as your favorite vinaigrette.
May be spelled alternatively as sumak, sumack, sumach, or summac.

The bag is huge so I shared with friends to make our own Middle Eastern and Arabic spice mixtures; we are adding the spices to most of our cooking for the flavor we love.Helen, Caldwell, ID

I have tried so many types of sumac in the United States and this is by far the best product I have found. It is delicious in Palestinian dishes. I would recommend this to everyone and I will continue buying this sumac from now on. I ordered several other products from this site and I’m very impressed with the qualitySuhad, Coconut Creek, FL
