Burlap & Barrel

Recycled Kraft Paper Bag

Our spectacular Cured Sumac grows wild around Gaziantep, Turkey. It has a bright, sour, salty and slightly fermented flavor that comes from being packed in salt. This is one of our most popular spices among professional chefs and home cooks alike. Cured Sumac is a classic Middle Eastern finishing spice. Swap it for lemon juice in any recipe or use it to add character and brightness to salads, fish, meat or dips. It also makes a perfect topping for anything from hummus to salad to roasted veggies or meat to scrambled eggs. “Tart and vivacious, invigorating citrus-like finish.” Bon Appetit "We purchase Burlap & Barrel’s Cured Sumac by the pound." Sohla El-Waylly, New York Times "The perfect topping for avocado toast." FastCompany
