Handmade Africa's Finest Berbere (Nigeria)
ITEM#: 13804350Berbere is turly an Ethiopian Spice, made from a mixture of paprika, chipotle, fenugreek, ginger, cardamom, nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon and garlic. It is traditionally used to flavor aromatic stews called wots, but can be used for any food. The flavor is smoky with a peppery bite and added warmth that only cinnamon and ginger can bring. The Artisan Story: Amsale Degefa is a small family business in Ethiopia. Run by Mr & Mrs. Eshetu from their small family factory, they started their business by documenting and improving on the age old recipe for berbere and other Ethiopian spices handed down by Mrs. Eshetu's mother who is from the Djimmah tribe. Djimmah is a small ethnic group in Ethiopia known for its coffee (by the same name) and ruled for over 100 years by the Aba Jiffar who diligently sees to the preservation of the local culture and way of life. This Djimmah recipe has been used for centuries to make a hot, spicy pepper from local ingredients. Africa's Finest berbere has been packaged using only the best ingredients and is now available for international clients using the same recipe and ingredients that the residents of Djimmah have enjoyed for eons. Experience this authentic Ethiopian peppery mix.

As an off and on vegetarian (more on lately), I'm always on the hunt for great veg dishes, and one of my favorite cuisines is Ethiopian. I love going to Ethiopian restaurants, but they're all located about as far east in the city as I am west, so it's not always convenient to go there, so I've been teaching myself to cook many of the dishes I love. One of the key ingredients to the spicy dishes (Wat) is berbere, the blend of various spices, both mundane and exotic. I could probably make my own blend, but i'd end up going to s spice store and probably spend more than I wanted to, so this ready made berbere is perfect! When I ordered it, I thought it was for a 1lb bag, and it turned out to be 2lbs! Well, I'm not going to complain, and I'll probably have it for a while, but for me, that just means I can feel free to make as much yeshimbra assa (spicy chickpea "fish" stew) and mesir wat (spicy red lentils) as I want! This berbere has a great smell and when I tasted it plain, it has quite a nice heat to it, and so far, everything I've cooked with it has turned out delicious. Perhaps not as authentic as my favorite restaurants, but definitely close enough to keep me happy until I can trek down to one of them.Read More
I used to live in India and could/would love to eat curries every day. I also like Mexican food. This blend has given my cooking a new kick and I have been using it lately for most of the meals I cook. Right out of the bag, it's not so fragrant, I can't identify the spices right away, but with a little salt combined with meat and vegetables it is almost magical. Not so identifiable as one cuisine or another. Just delicious. A little goes a long way, so experiment. A wonderful find!Read More
I love spicy foods and this product will give you what you are looking for. But remember to use in moderation since it is made up of various spices.Read More
