Israeli Za'atar

Israeli Za'atar

Preservative Free and Gluten Free $ 10.00

Za’atar (pronounced “Zah-tar”) is a common traditional spice blend found throughout the Middle East. Each region takes ownership of a particular variation of Za’atar, and our interpretation is one most commonly found in the kitchens of Israel. The blend is diverse in its applications because it balances the earthiness of French Thyme, the nuttiness of slow-toasted Sesame Seed, and the tartness of the Sumac Berry.

Size: 2.3 oz
  • Details

    We recommend using our Za’atar on meats and vegetables, but don't underestimate its ability to become a tasty addition to flatbread, when mixed with olive oil.

  • Ingredients

    Handcrafted from Sesame Seed, Thyme, Sumac Berry, and Sea Salt.
