Berbere spice

It’s been said that berbere is to Eritreans and Ethiopians as garam masala is to Indians, as vegeta is to Eastern Europeans, as thyme is to Jamaicans, as phố is to Viets, as… you get the idea. Berbere is at the heart of our cuisine.

Ingredients can include: chili peppers, garlic, ginger, basil, korarima (Ethiopian cardamom), rue, ajwain or radhuni, nigella, and fenugreek.
