Top 50 Famous Souvenirs Of Countries All Over The World - P44. Exotic Spices (Turkish)


( An exciting part of going abroad is buying souvenirs to take back home. Whether they are traditional, quirky, edible or purely for nostalgic memories, when you are on vacation in Turkey, the choice of souvenirs to buy is limitless! No matter where you go in the country, small souvenir shops sell a range of delights for yourself, friends, and family at home.

Spices have acquired a special place in Turkish cuisine. Lightly used, they add flavour to most dishes and considering the Turks dedication to spices, it is no surprise to see them sold in souvenir packages, especially in the Spice Market and Grand Bazaar of Istanbul. Turks like Pul Biber( red chilli flakes,) especially in their soups and also sprinkle Sumac (dried and ground red berries) on their salads but be aware of the saffron trap because most of it comes from Iran instead.

Fresh spices are found everywhere from the local bazaars and markets to the largest supermarkets. In fact, most spices used in Turkish cuisine are easy to find wherever you are. Just look in the spice section of your favorite market.

More exotic spices like nigella seeds and sumac powder can be found at Turkish, Greek, and Mediterranean grocers.
