Pepper & Pistachio Tursha
Most people don’t know how to define ‘tursha’, probably because it is a word that is widely used across different cultures. At Shams, we define it as any vegetables that’s sliced finely and fermented in its own juices.
A new tursha in our kitchen this season using local, green peppers (Qarn El Ghazal), fresh za'atar leaves, pistachios, salt and olive oil. This is not a spicy tursha, but rather a sweet, herbacious and nutty ferment that goes well with just about anything.
