Had a terrific gyro with hot peppers, too much sauce, and not enough onions. Afterward, the shop owner brought us some yummy home made hot mint tea.

Yuuuuuuuuuuuum. I am going to have to eat vicariously for a while. Not enough onions is tragic for a gyro though!

I don't think I could ever have enough onions on a gyro.

DH got spoiled with a sale on lamb a few weeks back, so now we've had a constant supply of homemade gyro meat. Meaing a constant supply of onions sumac for me! Yums.

I know generally what sumac is but have never purchased it. In what form does it flavor your gyros?

It's a sour, lemony taste...kind of fruity too. It really helps cut the grease of lamb or beef. When it's mixed with onions and a bit of lemon juice, it's really good...almost like a pickled onion relish.

I'm jealous! AND...I never had to describe sumac before - you did a great job!
