The defining spice of Ethiopia, Berbere is made with hand torn, toasted, and ground whole arbol chile, coriander seed, fenugreek, cardamom, black peppercorn, allspice, cumin, and clove, are blended with onion, paprika, nutmeg, ginger, cinnamon, and turmeric. SALT FREE.

Berbere is used in nearly every dish, and will lend fierce flavor to any meat or vegetable stew, legume or rice dish. The bright red color, complex heat, and intoxicating aroma will delight adventurous eaters.

Make traditional dishes like doro wat, tibs, mereq, misr wot (lentils), and more.

Add a little to your favorite fried chicken dredge for amazing flavor or add a lot and rediscover hot wings. Or fry/bake them, toss in a melted butter/berbere mix, and drizzle with honey.

Liven up cold noodle, potato, or vegetable salads.

Mix with vinegar and oil for home made hot sauce.
