Berbere is a traditional blend from Ethiopa and Eretria. The flavors are robust and feature a range of spices. The combination of heat from ginger and chiles alongside aromatics like cardamom, cinnamon and nutmeg make this unusual mix a power-house of flavor. 

Traditionally used to season the various lentil stews called "wats", it can also be used as a rub on chicken and lamb. Berbere has a wonderful flavor affinity with tomato, so try it in your favorite recipes for tomato based soups or chili. Learn how to make the blend and use it in a range of recipes with World Spice at Home

This sauce is addictive and can be used on almost anything that wants a drizzle of sweet-sour-spicy... Hot & Sweet Berbere Sauce— rice vinegar, 1/2 cup; sugar, 1/2 cup; garlic, fresh, 2 cloves, smashed and minced; sea salt, 1/4 tsp; berbere, 1 tsp. In a small sauce pan add vinegar and bring to a boil. Add sugar and stir to dissolve. Reduce heat to simmer and cook for 5 minutes. Place garlic and salt in a mortar and create a paste. Stir in the berbere and blend well. Off heat stir in the paste. Let cool and serve.
