Dried White Lime
Dried white limes are most commonly used in slow-cooked dishes, infusing sauces with complex citric flavours. These dried white limes are made from ripe, green limes which have been soaked in brine. They are then left to dry in the sun until their skin to turns hard and they develop delicate, fermented notes. The drying period is not as long as with black limes though, meaning they remain a lighter shade and are able take on the colour of the food they are cooked in.
Use a skewer to puncture the dried limes a couple of times before adding them to a tagine so that the hot juices penetrate deep into the fruit and bring out the flavour. Also try grinding the fruit in a spice mill – dried lime powder is great in meat and fish rubs, tabbouleh and quinoa salads.
Contains approx 15-20 limes

One advantage of using ground cardamom is that it dissolves in flavoured custards or milk, ensuring a silky-smooth texture. As well as working well in creams, custards and sweet Scandinavian pastries, cardamom powder can also be used to enhance savoury food such as fritters, spiced chickpeas and tabbouleh. Ingredients: 100% cardamom||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.||Aleppo pepper, or pul biber, is a coarsely ground Turkish and Syrian paprika. It’s popular as a condiment at the table in Turkish homes and restaurants - and most famously sprinkled over doner kebabs. Aleppo pepper is named after Aleppo, the largest city in Syria, and notably the end of the Silk Road spice route. The dried chilli peppers are intensely coloured, fruity, aromatic, but not particularly hot. Mix aleppo pepper flakes with finely diced preserved lemons and olive oil to make a paste. This is a great coating for chicken or white fish before roasting or grilling. This 1kg bag is ideal for catering purposes. A smaller 100g pot of Aleppo pepper is also available. Ingredients: Aleppo pepper, sunflower oil, salt.||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.||Mymouné’s Pomegranate Molasses is made with 100% pure pomegranates – no extras, no additives.
