Za'atar is traditionally eaten as a dip with olive oil and bread or used to season meat, fish or roasted vegetables. Try tossing sliced butternut squash with oil and za'atar, and roast for 40-60 minutes at 180 C. Serve with a spoon of creamy yoghurt. This 750g bag is ideal for catering purposes. A smaller 80g jar of Palestinian za'atar is also available. Zaytoun products are fairly traded and sourced from Palestinian farmers, and their za'atar is beautifully aromatic. Ingredients: za'atar-majorana syriaca (55%), sesame, sumac, sea salt, olive oil. This za'atar does not contain wheat and so is gluten free.||Falafel spice mix is a beautiful and complex spice blend of ten spices to season homemade falafels. Also blend the falafel spice with oil and garlic as a meat rub or marinade, or sprinkle over popcorn just before serving. The Arabic word for spices is baharat, so the falafel spice mix is also an example of baharat. Ingredients: coriander, cumin, cloves, caraway, fennel, turmeric, nutmeg, cardamom, chilli pepper, garlic||Urfa chilli flakes, or isot biber in Turkish, is a unique roasted paprika with an intense purple colour. 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.||Pomegranate molasses – or pomegranate syrup – has a fruity sweetness that's countered by a lovely, sharp tart flavour. Most often found in Middle Eastern recipes, and often referred to as dibs rumman, pomegranate molasses is a favourite ingredient in Ottolenghi’s cookbooks – and is included in our Cookbook Set: Jerusalem.
What is pomegranate molasses?
Pomegranate molasses is a treacly-rich fruit syrup made from boiled, reduced pomegranate juice. It is used in savoury and sweet dishes alike. It has the sweet-sourness of tamarind, rather than the pure fruit-richness of sultanas and prunes. Pomegranate molasses is called dibs rumman in Arabic.
How do I cook with pomegranate molasses?
Pomegranate molasses is delicious in everything from salad dressings and the roasted aubergine dip baba ganoush, to fesenjan stew, a braised Iranian chicken and walnut dish. The sharpness beautifully complements the oil in salad dressings, and is a good substitute for vinegar or lemon juice - try using alongside hazelnut oil for a rich and rounded dressing. Even try drizzling a little on top of hummus, or - in sweet dishes - over ice cream and meringues. Read more about pomegranate molasses with cooking ideas here.
How do I choose which pomegranate molasses to buy?
This pomegranate molasses is the Lebanese Cortas brand, which is a great value all-rounder, and perhaps the most commonly seen in the Middle Eastern pantry or supermarket. Two other brands are also available:
||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.|
