Recipe By Michael Kimball, Savory Spice Test Kitchen

A sprinkling of rose petals and a splash of rose water give this spicy North African condiment a touch of floral sweetness.

Serving Suggestions

Use to add spicy, floral flavor to hummus, lamb, or pasta.

Ingredients

1 red bell pepper

¼ cups extra-virgin olive oil



1 tsp. granulated sugar

½ tsp. Kosher Salt


Savory Spice ingredients in this recipe

Directions

Preheat oven to broil and line a small baking sheet with aluminum foil. Cut bell pepper in half lengthwise and remove stem, seeds, and membrane from both halves. Place bell pepper halves cut-side down on baking sheet and broil for about 14 min., or until charred and blistered across the top, rotating sheet halfway through. Transfer bell pepper halves to a medium bowl, cover tightly with plastic wrap, and let sit for 10 min., or until cool enough to handle and charred skin comes off easily. Use hands to remove and discard skin before adding the flesh to a blender. Add remaining ingredients and blend on high for 1 min., or until smooth, scraping the sides halfway through.
