Mahlab (Mahleb), Ground - DISCONTINUED

Mahlab, which is also spelled mahleb, is another great spice from the Eastern Mediterranean that is well worth experimenting with when cooking and baking. Mahlab kernels are the small, beige-colored, nut meats from the St Lucie (Prunus mahalebare) cherry tree.

Mahlab is widely used in Mediterranean countries and the Middle East, especially Turkey to flavor breads, biscuits and less sweet cakes and pastries. The kernels are typically dried and ground to flavor breads and pastries. Mahlab is soft and has a nutty, rather sour, cherry flavor.

One or two spoonfuls of ground mahlab added to pastries, cakes and fresh fruit flans give them a subtle cherry note. Simple milk puddings can be transformed with a few pinches of mahlab and Turkish rice is given its floral fragrance and interesting taste by using the spice. Traditional Greek Easter bread is flavored with mahlab and decorated with colored eggs. Because of its fragrant character and potential for bitterness, use it sparingly, one-half to one teaspoon (2 - 5 ml) to 2 cups (500 ml) of flour in a recipe is usually sufficient.

Why Buy Your Spices at Silver Cloud Estates?

Why buy spices online when they are so readily available at your local store? The answer is quality and price. The spices sold at your local store are often a year or two old. As spices age, they loose much of their flavor. Silver Cloud's spices are always fresh, never old. Our products are also an excellent value. When you need spices, click on Silver Cloud Estates for the freshest products at great prices.

Vanilla bean and extract prices have increased significantly this year. This is due to a smaller than expected crop in Madagascar last year. This was aggravated by early picking and the vacuum packing of uncured beans. While short term the news is not good, the 2016 flowering was excellent and we anticipate a good harvest. This may lead to some price softening, but with the strong demand for vanilla we have seen it is hard to say how much relief we will see. We will know more later this year as new crop, cured beans become available. Best case we do not anticipate any significant reduction in price before the end of the 1st quarter of 2017.
