Sumac spice is made by drying and grinding the berries of the wild sumac flower. The result is a coarse grind, not a fine powder, with a deep red tone. Use it to brighten up dry rubs, spice blends like za’atar and dressings. Sumac is also commonly used as a garnish, to add a pop of bold color or slight acidity to a dish before serving. Add it to your homemade hummus for tangy flair, or sprinkle it atop your spicy nut mix at parties. It’s also excellent when cooked with eggplant.
