Sumac bushes are native to the Middle East, and the
berries are ground into a spice blend in many cultures.
Kamā deseeds, sun-dries, and grinds these exquisite, tart
sumac berries into a course aromatic powder to be used
in many Levantine dishes. It is also a main ingredient in
za’atar. Use generously on roast chicken or vegetables,
or sprinkle on your salad. Sumac should be stored in dry
storage and in room temperature before and after opening.
Note – if shipping in a refrigerated truck, the product can
get clumpy at cold temperatures. Please store at room
temperature a soon as it is received and allow 48 hours for
the product to return to its original consistency.
Kamā was founded with the mission to empower, and give
employment, to local Jordanian women who transform
high quality raw ingredients into Arab and Levantine
delights. Kamā celebrates hands-on food experiences,
tradition, and seeks to create a space where people can
gather around the “sufra”–no matter where you live.
