Our Mahleb comes from the mountains of Lebanon. Mahleb is an aromatic spice made from the seeds of a species of cherry, Prunus mahaleb or St Lucie cherry. Mahleb seed kernel is ground to a powder before use and its flavour is like a combination of bitter almond and cherry. Used across Lebanon, Syria, Turkey and Iraq to enhance deserts, Mahlab is essential to Middle Eastern baking. Its an extremely rare and delicious spice well worth its price!
