Ground from tart berries, tart-and-fruity sumac is a souring agent used throughout the Middle East. Consider it a “dry” acid to add zip to your basic morning eggs (fried eggs with sumac and za’atar) or our Sumac-Spiced Chicken (Musakhan).
The easiest way to change the way you cook is to use high-quality spices—it will transform food with minimal effort. Fresh and potent, they pack a fresh, lively punch.
