Mahlep is an aromatic spice from the seeds of a cherry species.
Its flavor is similar to a combination of bitter almond and cherry.
Used in small quantities to refine sweet foods. While the recipe doesn't specifically call for this, try adding a teaspoon per cup of flour to your favorite sweet bread.
Like nutmeg and cinnamon, this spice can be used in savory dishes.
Whole seeds can be added to a rich pot roast, or use them grated in spice mixes, rubbing them on the surface of meats or in marinades.
Its flavor is particularly suitable for lamb.
