the pit of the sour cherry,
It has been used for centuries
in the Middle East (especially in Turkey and Syria) as a sweet/sour, nutty
addition to breads, cookies and biscuits. I use this for my bread and butter pickles to add a different twist. I add it to the pickling spices for the pickles .
I found it as an ingredient in some pickles I loved to order long ago from back east.
If you want to order some of this spice get it at Penzey's. Do not get confused they spell it differently then the original spelling fro the Spice House but it does not offer it any longer. So go to Penzey's
