Za'atar Pure Blend with Real Wild Thyme (Hyssop)

Regular price $17.95 Sale

Tyme Foods' pure blend contains 30% zaatar (hyssop) herb (also referred to as wild thyme, Syrian or Lebanese oregano) 30% Sumac, and 30% roasted sesame seeds, and 10% unrefined Mediterranean sea salt.  It is a gluten free zaatar mix. The zaatar herb is grown from seeds of wild zaatar found on the mountainous hills of Southern Lebanon and is known to produce very flavorful zaatar herb because of its high essential oil content (about 1 gram per ounce, and 4 to 40 times multiple the oil content of zaatar herbs from other regions.)  The sumac and sesame are also grown in Southern Lebanon.

This is a classic artisan made zaatar mixture as compared to low quality commercial and common grades, which often contain substitutes to the wild thyme/hyssop which is native to the Middle East, and contain wheat and other (often unknown!) fillings to increase volume, citric acid or other artificial substitutes in place of the Sumac.

We offer this zaatar in a relatively generous eight ounce portion because we are confident you will enjoy it beyond a seasoning or spice.  Try it as a dip food by dunking fresh bread or vegetable into olive oil then the zaatar - sprinkle it on salads, soups, and sandwiches - stir it into a yogurt - knead it into dough and pastry - and experiment with its many culinary possibilities.

Currently shipping Zaatar that was made (ground and mixed) in April of 2018. Best enjoyed before April 2020. Store in airtight container in dry place away from heat or sunlight.

It is a joy to have "the real thing" in our cabinet as we explore Middle Eastern cooking. We like to prepare ourselves what's not available locally and we are very satisfied with your za'atar! A very pleasing smell and taste!

Love that wild thyme

I'm a convert

I'm relatively new to Za'atar after dining with friends at a famous Brooklyn middle eastern restaurant. I love being able to enjoy it now at home. Wonderful on my goat cheese sandwiches!!
