Jeddah Spice Market - Sumac

The spice sumac derives from red berries of the sumac bush which grows in the Middle East. The berries are dried and then crushed into a coarse powder.  With its pleasant lemony taste, sumac is used to spice up many dishes in the region, oftentimes sprinkled on top to enhance not only the flavor, but to jazz up the appearance of the dishes.

That's a spice I haven't had.
