Condiment Lover: S'chug
Because it's so flavorful, and has a pleasant, rough texture with lots of chile seeds, you can use it to add zip and color to almost anything. I like it stirred into hummus, added to soups (especially lamb-and/or chickpea-stews), spooned on top of steak, or used as a sandwich spread. Throughout much of the Middle East it's a popular condiment on falafel and shawarma sandwiches.
You can get s'chüg at Holy Land Market (122 St. Mark's Place) or Fairway.
