Mahlab 50G


$4.99


DESCRIPTION

Mahlab (aka Mahleb or Mahlepi) is an aromatic spice made from the seeds of the St Lucie Cherry. The cherry stones are cracked to extract the seed kernel, which is about 5 mm diameter, soft and chewy on extraction, but ground to a powder before use. Its strong aroma means that it only need be used in very small quantities, the flavour being similar to a combination of bitter almond and cherry. It has been used for centuries in the Middle East and the surrounding areas (especially in Turkey, Egypt, Lebanon, Syria, the Palestinian territories, Iraq...) as a sweet/sour, nutty addition to breads, cheese, cookies and biscuits
