Seasoning Blends

Zaatar spice is the name of both a popular seasoning and herbal shrub found in the Middle East. Obviously, we're here to talk about the seasoning. Za atar is a zesty, sour, nutty spice blend that owes much of its flavor to sumac and to toasted sesame seeds. Salt is often added, but from there on it really depends on who is making it. Some commercial varieties also include roasted flour. Our blend comes with oregano and thyme to create an overly herbal salty-sour mix with plenty of earthiness from the sesame.

Zaatar spice mix is often enjoyed as a condiment. Dip bread in your favorite olive oil, and then dip into a bowl of Zaatar for an easy appetizer with zing. Whip into butter, ricotta, or sour cream for tangy spread and dips. If you plan to make your own French fries or potato chips, sprinkle them with Zaatar once they finish cooking for a fragrant snack.
