An Ethiopian all-purpose seasoning, Berbere is a traditional, fiery blend that varies from region to region. Our Berbere isn’t quite as complex as traditional Ethiopian blends, but its simplicity has excellent flavor and plenty of heat. Traditionally it’s used to flavor stews of meat (known as wats or we’ts), vegetables, and lentils.


More Information

Folklore holds that the hotter and more delicious a woman’s Berbere the more highly regarded she was as a potential wife.

Additional Uses:

For paste: Mix equal parts spice, oil, and hot water and use as a base for sauces.
