MAHLEPI GROUND From $4.50

The celebration spice! Mahlepi (also known as mahlebi or mahlab, amongst its various other spellings) is a unique Greek spice with a distinctive, fruity taste. Mahlepi powder is made from the inner kernels of fruit pits from a native Persian cherry tree. Once the stone is cracked to release the kernel, it is ground into a white, sandy-coloured powder used in baked goods, particularly in Middle-Eastern and Greek cooking.
