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

Regular price $16.99 Sale

Tyme Foods' pure no salt blend contains 33.3% zaatar herb (also referred to as wild thyme, Syrian or Lebanese oregano or the hyssop herb), 33.3% Sumac, and 33.3% roasted sesame seeds.  It does not contain any salt.  The lack of salt unmasks the slightly bitter and pungent flavor of the wild thyme and sharper flavor of the sumac.

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 September of 2018. Best enjoyed before September, 2020. Store in airtight container in dry place away from heat or sunlight.

I've used others . Gave the others away after I found this one.

It test fresh and very good and takes me back 70 years!

It is fresh and tastes very good as my 78 year old tastebuds tell me. I also wrote about how we, kids and grandma, used to go and collect the Zaatar , we used the Turkish name Kekik because she was born in Turkey and came to Lebanon during the Genocide. We dried it and blended it with roasted chickpeas, damme, and pumpkin seeds. We used to crush them and mix them with the Zaatar then the blend was mixed with Koura olive oil and had it for breakfast with French loaf.

Excellent Product and Fast Service

I ordered this on a Saturday morning and it arrived on Monday - now that is fast order processing and shipping!

I have been a long time user of this type of spice, but this was my first purchase from this company, and their zaatar is the best tasting I have ever tried. Very fragrant in the package, and tastes amazing. I highly recommend this product and the outstanding service of Tyme Foods!
