Dried Black Lime
Dried Persian black limes are most commonly used in slow-cooked dishes, infusing sauces with complex citrus flavours. These dried black limes are made from ripe, green limes which have been soaked in brine and left to dry in the sun. The first stage of drying produces dried white limes – the black limes are a result of an elongated drying period, which allows them to develop stronger musky, fermented notes.
Use a skewer to puncture the dried limes a couple of times before adding them to a Persian chicken tagine so that the hot juices penetrate deep into the fruit and help bring out the flavours. Also try grinding the dried black limes in a spice mill – dried lime powder is great in meat and fish rubs, tabbouleh and quinoa salads.

The spice is made from paprika peppers, which are slow dried in an oven. It has a warm, rounded, smoky spice flavour, with hint of citrus. Urfa chilli flakes or isot biber is most famously used in çiğ köfte, heavily spiced patties made from raw mincemeat and bulgur wheat, and lahmacun, a baked flat bread made with meat. To use, sprinkle over salads and meat.||Great for giving your rice and couscous a lift, Mymouné’s Orange Blossom Water is fresh and fragrant.

Ingredients: distilled orange blossom||Sumac comes from dried and coarsely-ground berries which have a sour, citrus-flavour. The burgundy-coloured sumac berries grow in clusters, and the dried berries are widely used throughout Middle Eastern cuisine in place of lemon juice, vinegar or tamarind. Sprinkle the deep red sumac powder over hummus, or use to garnish Persian rice. Also try combining sumac with fresh lemon juice and olive oil as a salad dressing, or use the lemony flavours to season lahmacun flat breads and grilled fish. Equally, sumac enhances the flavour of lamb and chicken dishes with its citrus notes, and it is often rubbed into kebabs before cooking to cut through the fattiness of the meat.||Terra Rossa’s Spicy Dukka is the classic North African blend of roasted sesame and aromatic spices. The dukka – or dukkah – is perfect for sprinkling over hummus, salads, yoghurt and vegetables. Mixed with olive oil it makes a tasty dip for pitta bread. Try using the dukka to season chicken, lamb, potatoes, curries and even stir-fries. Or be adventurous and make your own flatbread – finish with a generous scatter of spicy dukka for an authentic Middle Eastern starter or snack. Terra Rossa’s founder, Hanan Samara, has created a beautiful range of spices and sauces based on the Middle Eastern flavours from her childhood. Hanan was born in Iraq to Palestinian parents and exiled to the UK In 1969. Terra Rossa is the Latin name for ‘red soil’, and the Romans’ biblical name for the Levant area of the Middle East with its distinctive coloured earth – spreading across Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Israel and Palestine. Today Hanan travels to Jordan twice a year to meet with the master spice blender at her favourite spice market. They taste the spices together to ensure the flavours are consistent year round, adjusting the recipe a little every time. In a milder year, they might use a touch more of the stronger Palestinian za’atar or wild thyme. And in a different season, perhaps more of the milder Jordanian za’atar. Hanan then uses these spices to make Terra Rossa’s sauces in the UK, with flavours inspired by her heritage. The spice blends and sauces win Great Taste Awards year after year. Ingredients: roasted sesame, wheat, coriander, soya oil, dill, sumac, caraway, red chilli, salt, citric acid. Contains allergens: sesame, wheat (gluten), soya.||Gum mastic or mastiha is a popular ingredient in North African and Mediterranean cuisine. The yellow gum mastic crystals are a natural resin from the Chia tree, grown only on the Aegean Island of Chios in Greece. The Island became Internationally famous for its gum mastic trees in the early 13th Century. Gum mastic crystals have delicate pine-resin and balsamic aromas, and are used in both sweet and savoury cooking. The crystals are also famous for their health benefits, thought to freshen breath, and have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial properties. A recipe for chicken roasted in gum mastic or mastiha and pomegranate molasses is a favourite of Stevie Parle, from the Dock Kitchen. He also uses gum mastic to bring Eastern flavours to a milk ice cream recipe. And in Sam & Sam Clark's Moro cookbook, the rosewater and cardamom ice cream recipe includes a few crystals of gum mastic crushed together with caster sugar, and stirred into when the cream/milk mixture is cool, just before churning. Pack contains 30-50 medium crystals|
