My previous choice when I first bought Zaatar was from Amazon. It was thyme and sesame seeds with a little sumac and salt.
REAL Zaatar herb (Origanum Syriacum) is way better. I chose the sesame-free version, and I add sesame seeds sometimes but not always. EXCELLENT product. And I use a tiny fraction of the amount of the other brand. It makes yours a much better value. Thanks!
Delicious Zaatar, excellent service, i highly recommend it,
So fresh tasting. Fragrant and some of the best that I have ever tasted. I will be buying more of their delicious blends. Thank you so much.
I had been making the Zaatar herb and spice mixture using a personal blend of thyme, oregano, coriander, and marjoram (along with sumac, sesame seeds, salt, cumin, and Aleppo red pepper). Now I don't need the European green herbs since the genuine Syrian oregano is better than my herb mixture. It has a more intense flavor and aroma that I like better. I do like adding some cumin and Aleppo pepper to the mixture along with the other essential ingredients. I toast my own sesame seeds, for example, so they are especially fragrant. If you don't have Aleppo red pepper, just add some black pepper, but the Aleppo pepper is better. I'm glad I found the authentic Zaatar so I don't have to use a mixture of inauthentic herbs. Previously, I had sources for sumac and Aleppo pepper, but not for the true Zaatar herb. Try sprinkling the zaatar blend on potato salad and any thing you might make with olive oil, such as tuna salad, hummus, or a Greek salad.
I had been enjoying za'atar for yrs, but after being unable to eat sesame seeds (they stick in the gaps between my teeth!), I tried everything to remove the seeds. Using a sieve didn't work, some seeds still dropped through. But upon receiving this za'atar, I'm very happy. Besides no sesame seeds, this is good quality pure za'atar blend, without low quality additives which other blends include. Thank you, it was worth the wait. And thanks to all the people who produce the product. The high quality is because of their hard work!
