Today after work when I was waiting for the tram, I decided to take another one than the usual one. I needed to shop food and I thought that I just as well could go to the ICA foodstore where I used to shop before moving to the new flat. As I was getting closer to my stop, I saw a new food store through the window. The sign said Kryddhuset (The spice house) and I couldn’t resist walking back a bit and visit it! It was a nice store with all kinds of spices, tea, coffee, honey and many other interesting things. I ended up buying hot indian curry powder, fish curry masala and Sumac. I actually didn’t know what the dark red coloured Sumac is, so I couldn’t resist buying it as it looks really interesting and as it was the last jar (that must be a good sign, I thought). At home I looked it up on the internet and I found this page and this one about Sumac. Apparently Sumac is often used in Döner Kebap and the spice is being preffered to lemon for sourness and astringency in the Arabic kitchen. I have a cold at the moment so I can’t smell it, but it does taste a bit sour and it will be really fun to try it out. So if you have any nice recipes including Sumac, they are very welcome.

    I use to sprinkle sumac on top of fattoush salad – yummy. I think Niki (at Esurientes) has a recipe for sumac-crusted lamb or chicken or something on her blog – check her index! Also, I think Nigella does a chicken thing in one of her books – if I stumble upon them, I’ll surely let you know! How nice with your very own spice house…
