This rose water is made by boiling rose petals in water, and then capturing and condensing the steam. The clear-coloured rose water works well in syrups, baklava, ice creams, meringues and even rice puddings. Start by adding a small amount of the rose water – it is easier to add than take away, and the perfume is quite intense. Brand may vary depending on availability. Ingredients: water, rose essence||Olives et Al Egyptian dukkah is a nutty, savoury spice blend that livens up salads and roasted vegetables. In Egypt, it’s commonly served in a dish for people to dip olive oil-soaked bread into as a starter. Dukkah is a traditional Egyptian spice blend of roasted nuts and mixed spices. Almonds, hazelnuts, coriander and cumin are found in nearly every dukkah blend, but each family will have their own secret recipe. This recipe is inspired by a blend that the Olives et Al founders tasted while on a trip to Egypt. A sprinkle of Egyptian dukkah puts a new twist on hummus and plain yoghurt dips. Rub it into lamb or chicken before roasting, or scatter over roasted vegetables and potatoes. It’s also a great crunchy salad topper, or stir through cooked rice for an easy side dish. Ingredients: sesame seeds (36%), mixed spices (coriander, cumin) (29%), mixed nuts (almonds [12%], hazelnuts [12%]), salt, garlic, thyme, black pepper. Contains allergens: sesame, nuts.||Terra Rossa’s Herby Zaatar – also known as za’atar, or zatar – is the quintessential Arabian seasoning. Made primarily with wild Jordanian thyme, the za’atar will bring a taste of the exotic Middle East to your dishes. Nutty, fragrant and with subtle aniseed flavours, zaatar seasoning is wonderful with chicken, white fish and lamb. This zaatar spice mix is also great to sprinkle over hummus and yoghurt to make easy dips. 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. Their spice blends and sauces win Great Taste Awards year after year. Ingredients: roasted thyme, roasted wheat, roasted sesame seeds, sumac, sunflower oil, coriander, fennel, dill, salt, citric acid. Contains allergens: wheat (gluten), sesame.||Dukkah is a savoury Egyptian blend of nuts and spices used to flavour marinades and a wide range of side dishes. The combination of hazelnuts, almonds, cumin and coriander bring rich, aromatic notes to simple meat or grain dishes. Pop a bowl of dukkah on the table when serving bread and oil – it adds an exotic twist on the normal aperitif. Also sprinkle a little over cooked vegetables, add a pinch to meatballs, or rub into lamb or chicken before cooking. Ingredients: Almonds, hazelnuts, coriander seeds, cumin, sesame, salt, pepper. Contains nuts & sesame.||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:
