Zatar after Yotam Otto Lenghi
The name of this spice blend comes from its main ingredient, wild thyme, because it is the Arabic name of the herb used. It is similar in taste to the local oregano and is called hyssop in Israel.
It also contains sesame seeds, sumac and a little salt. This spice mixture is known as the most popular in Palestine and it is even used for breakfast. It is used with olive oil and fresh wholemeal bread.
Zatar: This ingredient is the freshly picked wild thyme. It gives the spice mixture its characteristic flavour.
Sesame: The intense flavour comes from a light toasting. Sesame provides the oily part in this mixture.
Sumac: This spice is characteristic of Turkish, Syrian and Lebanese cuisine. It is mainly used for stews with chicken, lamb and fish.
Salt: This mineral is used primarily as a flavour enhancer to bring out all the intense other spices.
