The Origin of Za'atar
Magic Spice Blend
A New Taste Sensation
Note: This is not a fine spice blend, but rather a little coarser and nuttier.
A Local Herb
As the popular spice, Za’atar is an herb that is native to the Middle East. Za’atar can also refer to a blend of spices with this herb as the main focus. The use of this spice has been recorded back to the biblical era. Some even say that it was used before then, during Ancient Egyptian times.
This herb can be used for both cooking and as a sort of medicine due to its antioxidant qualities. This is an adaptable spice that goes well with meat, seafood, and sauces.
Sumac - A Popular Middle Eastern Spice
Sumac is another key ingredient of most za’atar blends. It is popular as a tabletop condiment from Turkey to the Middle East. Sumac can also be added to the dukkah spice blend.
We recommend to sprinkle sumac over salad and grilled meat and vegetables.
