Zaatar is the name of any of several fragrant wild thyme varieties from eastern Europe, and, more famously, the wonderful and ubiquitous mixture that combines zaatar with sesame seeds, sumac, sea salt, and sometimes other spices. There are as many zaatar recipes as there are cooks in Lebanon. To make ours, we combine several herbs with sumac and sesame, leaving out the salt, so that you can add it to suit your taste. Use to season meats, vegetables, dressings, yogurt and cheese. Bake it into bread or dip bread into olive oil, then zaatar. Combine it with olive oil and salt for an amazing and addictive dip, za'atar-wu-zeit. Ingredients: sumac, sesame, thyme, marjoram, Mexican oregano. Ground, blended & packaged in Vancouver, B.C. Canada. (Contains Sesame).
