Za' atar

Availability: In stock


 There is a belief that this particular spice mixture (za'tar) makes the mind alert and the body strong.

Traditionally, za'atar is made by drying the wild herb under the sun, which is then blended with salt, sesame seeds and sumac. It is consumed principally with unleavened Arabic bread (pita) dipped in olive oil and then the za'atar. The combination can be spread on a dough base and baked as a bread, in which case it is called manakeesh bi zaatar.
