Sumac is a tangy spice with a sour, acidic flavor reminiscent of lemon juice. Made from the dried and ground berries of the wild sumac flower, the bush, native to the Middle East and growing throughout the Mediterranean, Turkey and parts of Iran and is used widely throughout the region. This fragrant spice is used to brighten up dry rubs and spice blends and is the main ingredient in the spice blend Za'atar. Sprinkle Sumac on fish, chicken, salads, marinades, salad dressings, soups and hummus. Use as a rub for meats prior to grilling. Mix with strained yogurt for a light, delicate sauce. Try substituting anywhere you might squeeze fresh lemon juice. It is excellent in dressings and is used as a salt substitute by many as it is known to amplify the natural flavors of foods much like salt does.
