Hunting for Harissa [MSP]

AnneInMpls Jun 28, 2007 09:53 PM

I'm hunting for a specific store-bought harissa (aka North African pepper relish): Mustapha's Moroccan Harissa. It comes in a jar and is rather expensive - $7 or $8, but is well worth the money. See this link for a picture of the label:


This version of red-peppery delight contains bits of preserved lemon, and is positively addictive - it's great with grilled meats, or just as a dip for carrot sticks. I bought two jars at the Wedge last December, and am just finishing the second one now. Sadly, the Wedge doesn't currently have any - it was a holiday splurge item, I think.

Has anyone seen this brand of harissa in the Twin Cities? I can order it online from Seattle, but I'd rather buy it in person if I can.

    I'm not sure about the Twin Cities, but World Market in KC carried it at one time. You might check World Market in MSP.
    You're right, it's a great brand of harissa.

      Yes I have bought a bottle of harrisa @ world market in Roseville a couple of months back. It was on a discounted shelf so I am not sure they sell it anymore but it is worth a shot. Also the same brand (Al Fez) sells a Moroccan marinade called baharat (sp?) which is a Mediterranean black pepper sauce which is great. S2H

      Hey, you might want to try Williams-Sonoma, I saw some in there the other day (in California, but I don't see why they wouldn't have the same stuff) that looked suspiciously like your pic (but with the WS branding, of course).
