Janissary Spice Blend

This blend originates in Istanbul’s spice market (Misir Carsis). It has a bright and rich almost meaty flavor. The name refers to the Sultan’s elite military group conscripted at children from the non Turkish population – the Janissaries.

 1 Tblsp Aleppo Chili

 ½ Tblsp Greek Oregano, cut & sifted

 ½ Tblsp Sumac 

 Mix the spices and place air tight container. Add to salads, vegetables, eggs and meat. Before using in the recipe, crush in a mortar and pestle to release all the flavors.

 Notes: Guajillo chili is a good substitute for Aleppo. If you want a bit more heat, use Marash chili. For an even sweeter flavor try dehydrated red bell peppers.
