All-natural, quality sumac is a complex spice–a stringent, sour, smokey, and earthy all at the same time! Sumac is available for purchase on its own or can be found in our most popular spice bundle, the Exotic 4-pack.

View full details



Sumac comes from the Arabic “summaq,” which means “dark red.” It is a deep red, astringent spice popular in Middle Eastern cooking. Sumac is made from the berry fruit of the Rhus Coriaria shrub, which was originally grown in parts of the Mediterranean basin, and then spread to Europe. The sumac berries are dried, then ground and sifted to get rid of the bitter inner seed. The coarse crimson-colored powder is then bottled as a spice. See our comprehensive sumac guide for more info about this spice, as well as additional ideas for how to use it!

    Have read so much Sumac. It’s a great addition to our spice cabinet. Adds wonderful flavor to our dishes.

    Great Site …

    My doctor told me that I should switch over to a Mediterranean diet. Much healthier than what I was doing for eating. I started searching the internet and came across The Mediterranean Dish and was not disappointed. It is a one stop shopping for everything I needed. According to the bio, Suzy (owner operator), actually lived in the region so she probably has more insight into Mediterranean cuisine than most people. I have purchased a number of spices, her cookbook and have tried 4 of the recipes so far and they were amazing!

    Thank You!!!

    I love this Sumac... it's the most intense flavor I've ever had. Highly recommend it. I use about half that of others I've purchased and get the impact. If I had 3 thumbs ... they'd all be up.


    Love it! Use it often on many things .
