Sumac is a wonderful spice that is today gaining in popularity for its lively, tangy flavor and lovely color. It has a slightly tart, pleasant brightness in flavor that is vaguely like plum or pomegranate, but also a pleasant mild sweetness reminiscent of apple or berry. Sumac is particularly excellent with dark meats, especially in roasting, because of the way it interacts with the fats and flavors of the roast. It lends a mild brightness that enhances dark or caramelized flavors, and also provides meats a rich, juicy texture. Sumac is equally excellent used cold, such as being sprinkled on hummus, or mixed into yogurt or sour cream for a dip or dressing. Most famously it is the foundation of the spice blend za’atar.
