Did you buy a bottle of sumac to make za’atar and now you don’t know what to do with the rest of it? Here are 31 sumac recipes to make sure that jar of tangy goodness doesn’t waste away in your spice cabinet.
If you aren’t too familiar with sumac, you’re going to want to get up close and personal with it by the end of this post. Ground spices don’t last forever. So I can be reluctant to go out and buy a whole jar of something new to me just to use one teaspoon of it in a recipe. I err on the side of cheapskate. Sooooooo I scoured the internet and hounded my super talented blogger friends to round up 31 of the most mouthwatering sumac recipes I could find. And then I put them all in one place for easy breezy access. Because I really really want you to experience the zesty, tangy zip sumac lends to everything it touches. OK, maybe it was a little bit self-motivated too 😉
