Apparently, sc'hug is Yemeni is origin. I only found one online place to buy it -- a kosher market in New York. (aviglatt dot com) But it looks super easy to make. Here's a recipe. 1 teacup chopped coriander 5 medium hot green peppers 2-4 cloves of garlic 1/2-1/3 tsp. cumin 1/2 tsp. salt 2 tbs. oil Preparation: Gently and carefully cut and clean the peppers from the seeds. Grind with all other ingredients in a food processor until the desired consistency is achieved. (*) also spelled Schug, Zchug, Zhug etc. The meaning of the name is “ground”. Here's another recipe. Similar, but slightly different. I have got to try this stuff! 1 pound of red or green hot peppers (you can mix it up, but use red or green for bright, consistent color) 1 head fresh garlic, peeled 1 1/2 tablespoons cumin Black pepper and sea salt to taste Olive oil to cover Optional: fresh cilantro leaves, cardamom, and lemon juice. Throw your peppers and garlic into a food processor and purée. Add spices and pulse a few times to mix. Store the mixture in a glass jar and cover with olive oil. Refrigerate. Make sure to wash your hands before touching your eyes or anything else.
