Pilpelchuma (the name means “pepper garlic” in Hebrew, and both are key ingredients of traditional Pilpelchuma) is an intensely flavored condiment prepared throughout the Tripolitan region of Libya and increasingly popular in areas of Israel where many Jewish Libyan ex-pats have settled. It is an essential ingredient in traditional Shakshuka.
Our Pilpelchuma Seasoning is a spicy mix of crushed chiles and garlic, handcrafted to recreate the intense flavors of the popular Libyan condiment. Pilpelchuma, which translates to “pepper garlic” in Hebrew, is common throughout Libya and Israel and is often compared to harissa.
