    Dreamer in Ontario's Note:

    I found this in today's Toronto Star and I'm posting it for ZWT6. The person who submitted the recipe to the Star says this "is like the nation food" in the region of Kilis. The big difference between this version and the Lebanese version of muhammara is the addition of feta and a complex taste that comes from multiple ingredients. The Toronto Star states that a couple of the harder to find ingredients may be considered optional i.e. the hot paprika mix/pepper cream. Cooking time is refrigeration time. Made for ZWT6

      I loved the complexity and contrast of flavors in this dish. It had sweet, spicy, hot and more! The only deviation I made was I used pomegranate seeds rather than walnuts and juice.
