Mahleb (also known as Mahlab, Mahalepi, Mahlep and Mahalab or Mahaleb) is an aromatic, regal spice that is processed from wild cherry stones. The cherry (St. Lucie or Mahaleb) stones are dried and cracked, and the seed (kernel) is extracted. The seed is chewy and soft and is ground into a powder. The flavour is like a mix of cherry and bitter almond – almost like a marzipan taste. Some say that they notice slight hints of floral and vanilla. Once the powder is cooked into the recipe, it becomes rich, fruity and subtle. It can be used in smaller amounts to enhance the flavour of traditional treats and sweets such as donuts, pastries, pies, breads, spreads, cakes, buns, biscuits, and various other desserts. Mahleb spice is a popular ingredient that has been used for centuries in Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cuisine. It pairs well with dairy and honey and is a great spice to experiment with when creating delicious baked goods. This product originated in Turkey, is produced by 24K and comes in 50 gram container. Remember, a little goes a long way when it comes to Mahleb so use it sparingly.

    Ingredients

    Mahleb seeds

    • BITTER SWEET - This spice has a strong flavour that is similar to bitter almonds and wild cherries. It is bold, tart and definitely leaves an impression on you. Some say it is very close to the taste of marzipan. Some report slight tones of vanilla and floral.
    • USAGE IDEAS - Use this powder in smaller amounts to enhance the flavour of traditional treats, desserts and sweets such as donuts, pastries, pies, breads, spreads, cakes, buns and biscuits. You can enhance the flavour of many desserts by adding just a little of this tasty somewhat exotic powder.
    • A LEGENDARY SPICE - Mahleb spice has its own history trail and is a very popular ingredient that has been used for centuries in Mediterranean and Middle Eastern recipes. You'll find it in tsoureki breads in Greece, ma'amoul scones in the Middle East and poğaça scones in Turkey.
    • VERSATILE - Mahleb can be used in numerous ways. It can be made into a paste with honey, sesame seeds and nuts and eaten as a snack with bread or a dessert. It can be added to all sorts of baked goods, from bundt cakes, muffins and sugar cookies to crumb cakes, scones and donuts.
    • PAIRS WELL - It pairs well with dairy, whether cheese or milk form. It can also blend extremely well with honey - so much that you might not be able to stop eating it! It works well in a rice pudding, crème brulee and cheese-based tart recipes.
