There are, like curries, hundreds of variations of Za’atar. To handcraft our Za’atar we mix sumac berries, toasted sesame, salt, cumin, thyme, oregano and marjoram.. All throughout the Mediterranean, Za’atar is commonly used as a table condiment. As a condiment, you can sprinkle it on chicken or fish for a delicious taste of Med-Rim cuisine.

One of the best ways to enjoy Za’atar is as a simple paste for dipping and spreading. Za’atar Spread - Mix 1-2 tbsp. Za’atar to about 1-2 tbsp. of any good olive oil. Drizzle in oil slowly until you reach the desired consistency for your needs (a little more oil for dipping, a little less for spreading). Za’atar spread is great for dipping fresh breads or for spreading on pita and toasting until crispy.
