Mahlab, our versatile Mahlab (Mahlepi, Mahleb), powder which is made from the seeds of the St. Lucy’s cherry, commonly used in Greek and Middle Eastern desserts where a tsp per 240g of flour is often added to cookies, cakes, or rolled pastries. With a taste a little like cherries, roses, or almonds, with a hint of flora and vanilla, a little goes a long way and It will make your kitchen smell utterly delicious!

Not just a baking spice Mahlab also pairs well with certain meats, use as a marinade for pork or lamb, adding depth to a lamb tagine. It’s subtle, rich taste also pairs well with dairy products including cheese (sprinkle some into a cheese tart), and perfect for rice pudding (try scented with Greenfields rosewater).

In Egypt, powdered mahlab is made into a paste with honey, sesame seeds and nuts, and eaten as a dessert or a snack with bread, it’s also common in a Greek sweet bread ‘tsoureki’ traditionally baked for Easter.

“You don’t need much for it to make an effect, but it can make all the difference between a ho-hum dessert and something alluring.”
