Ground Mahlab - Mahleb


Mahaleb (mahlab, mahlep) is an aromatic spice widely used in the Middle East and Greece. It comes from the pit of the black cherry and its bittersweet taste gives an incomparable flavour to any preparation. 

In Greece it is used to flavor cakes, pastries, and holiday breads. Mahlepi gives tsoureki (Greek Easter bread) its trademark fragrance.
