- Can be chewed as a gum on its own. Mastic was used as the world's first chewing gum!
- As a powder. Crushed in a jar, use as a condiment in bread, biscuits, ice cream, yoghurt or in sauces such as panacotta.
- Add 50 g of mastic to 1 litre of water. Leave in the fridge overnight.
Interesting observation: the harder the mastic is frozen, the easier it is to grind it into a powder and it does not stick!
