Locavore Zahtar (Za'atar)



Zahtar, or zaatar, is another spice blend from the Middle East. Some versions use coriander and cumin, but ours includes dried thyme and oregano, along with the traditional sesame seeds and sumac that are customary to most zahtar blends. The sumac adds a bit of tang, and the oregano and thyme are delicious on chicken and other meats. May also be added to baba ghanoush or hummus, or blended into olive oil for a marinade or bread dip.
