Berbere

A complex, spicy and aromatic blend of chiles and spices, Berbere is one of the essential components of Ethiopian cooking. In Ethiopia, making authentic Berbere is a weeks-long endeavor steeped in cultural tradition. Each family has its own recipe.

Our version is a shortcut that comes as close as we could to the authentic flavor in an easy-to-use blend for Ethiopian cooking at home.

Use this Ethiopian blend of spices as a dry rub for meats and roasted vegetables. It also makes great sauces and spicy lentils. For a paste, use equal parts spice and red wine.

Hand-mixed from: Red chile, Garlic, Ginger, Pacific Sea Salt, Koreima, Shallots, Ajwain, Nigella, Coriander, Cloves, Cinnamon, Besobela, Fenugreek, Thyme and Rosemary.
