This couscous product in Tunisia is known as M'hamsa, which translates into sun-dried wheat grains. Produced in the traditional Berber method, these large grains are hand-rolled and preserved with olive oil and sunlight, which give them a nutty, earthy flavor unlike any other couscous. Production begins by mixing semolina with olive oil, water, and salt, which is then pushed through screens. This couscous is jarred with dried red peppers that lend some gentle heat, though the peppers can also be cooked whole with the couscous for even more spice. The couscous is complementary to almost all North African and Mediterranean cuisine, including stews, meat, and fish dishes, and is also delicious with any of the Les Moulins Mahjoub Couscous Sauces. As with all of the Mahjoub products, M'Hamsa Hand-rolled Couscous is produced using traditional farming methods with no additives or artificial processes.
Durum wheat semolina, red peppers, extra virgin olive oil, salt, water.
