Za'atar is the most beloved spice mix in Palestine. Za’atar is traditionally eaten for breakfast with olive oil and fresh ﬂat bread.
Canaan women’s cooperatives make za’atar according to tradition with freshly harvested and dried oregano, roasted sesame seeds, and sumac. The fresh aroma of oregano, the acidity of sumac, and the nutty ﬂavor from sesame add up to a winning combination of texture and ﬂavor.
Za’atar pairs perfectly with olive oil as a delicious marinade for meat or zesty seasoning on vegetables that springs to life with ﬂavor. Sprinkle it on cream cheese, yogurt, or toasted bread for the perfect accent.
