What Is Za’atar?

7 May

Za’atar the spice blend is a mixture of dried herbs, sesame seeds, and sumac, and often salt, a centuries-old mixture dating back to the 13th century, at least. What those herbs are and how all those ingredients are proportioned vary from culture to culture and family to family. Besides a spice blend, a wild herb, a dip, a condiment, and a snacking equivalent of popcorn, it’s an ancient cultural institution, a symbol of national identity, and a personal watermark. http://bit.ly/J6OqtP
