Chios Mastiha (PDO) Powder (1.8 oz)
Since mastiha tears must be ground to use in cooking, this mastiha powder is convenient for anyone without a mortar and pestle. Mastiha has an exotic but versatile flavor that can be used in virtually anything from desserts, breads, salads, or even pasta sauces and fish. A couple of my favorite recipes are below but the possibilities are really endless!
I bought this after seeing the recipe for mastiha pasta. We really enjoyed the recipe. I had never used mastiha powder before, but will now make sure I have it in my pantry.
It was OK I’m sorry I didn’t buy the actual mastiha itself though, perhaps the flavor might have been stronger.
The Mastiha hasa fabulous flavor. I used it in Tsoureki. It gave a mild but distinct flavor i associate with the bread usually made at Easter. I make it all year long and now have my favorite spice to include.
Haven't used it yet, I need recipes for it.
I purchased it after seeing an episode of Diane's show where she described its flavor and aroma. I'm disappointed. It has no flavor and no aroma! On the show she had used crystals and ground them herself. This powder is already ground perhaps that's the difference. But no matter. It's a pretty useless seasoning as is.
