We are pleased to offer our customers the “pure Za'atar” herb, as well as our own Za'atar spice blend. Za'atar is the name of a herb blend that is ever-present in Israeli cooking. Za'atar (or Zahtar) is also the name of a spice blend that is popular in Middle Eastern cooking, and is the Arabic word for “thyme”. We import this rare herb directly from an Israeli farmer near the Sea of Galilee, as it is always our intention to provide you with the freshest and most authentic taste possible. For breakfast, Israelis sprinkle Za'atar mixture on pita drizzled with olive oil, or stir it into the yogurt cheese known as labane. Add the Za'atar blend to spinach turnovers and pita pizza, both making great dishes for lunch and a snack. For a savory supper, the mixture can be used as a dry rub for fish or chicken, or added to marinades for grilled or roasted vegetables. Za'atar can even go festive in a party dip.
