Having a mad feeling of normality, is there anywhere I can buy Arabic gum, also known as mastic and sumac? It would be great if there was somewhere near to new Kent road. Feel desire to cook! Sumac is a separate thing...thank you..
I'm not going out in the rain to find out - but St. James Supermarket on the crossroads of St. James Road and Southwark Park Road - Down The Blue! - has a great range of Mid eastern products including Sumac, and could well have what you are looking for. No connection etc.
thank you everyone...I have been given a book written by Nadia Sawalha called the 'greedy girls diet!' I want to try and make chicken shahwarma and the mastic was one of the ingredients.. Sumac apparently is a mixture of spices..reading on now will search for pomegranite syrup..and rosewater..in the vain hope I will be able to use them..
