Sumac has been used throughout the region for centuries in a plethora of ways. This ancient spice, revered for centuries in Palestinian cuisine, is then harmoniously blended with a carefully curated selection of complementary spices and herbs, creating a symphony of flavors. 

In ancient Greek and Roman times, sumac was used to dye wool and tan leather. It was also used in alternative medicine for its believed antioxidant and antimicrobial properties. Today, this beloved Palestinian spice is still believed to benefit digestion in alternative medicine; for this reason, sumac berries are commonly juiced and made into a drink to settle the stomach and relieve digestive issues.

It is commonly used in cooking as a way of adding a delicious citrus-like quality to food. The most famous Palestinian dish using sumac is Musakhan, blending sumac with caramelized onions, pine nuts and chicken. Musakhan is the national dish of Palestine!
