M’Hamsa Couscous

M’Hamsa Couscous

This couscous is prepared in the original method that was started by the Berbers of the Maghreb thousands of years ago. The semolina flour is hand rolled with olive oil and salt on screens, allowing the small grains to fall through and then adding flour to and rolling again until a consistent size grain is formed. The couscous is sun dried, giving it a rich, full, toasty flavor when cooked.

The time honored tradition of making this couscous is what is so special. Even if you never make a trip to Tunisia , at least you can have one of its most authentic foods on your table in no time at all.
I buy my from Zingerman’s for about $10 per jar.
