Za'atar is a Middle Eastern spice blend consisting of aromatic and sour sumac, fragrant thyme, sesame seeds, and salt. It's easy, it's delicious.
Course: Side Dish
Cuisine: Middle Eastern
120mldried thyme1/2 cup
1tspPink Himalayan Sea Saltcan use regular sea salt
Place all the ingredients - sumac, thyme, sesame seeds, Pink Himalayan Sea Salt - into a spice grinder* and grind until powder form.
Store in an airtight container.**
* And if you don't have a spice grinder, place the ingredients in a plastic bag and bang it with something hard, e.g. a rolling pin. It probably won't be as fine a powder as in a spice grinder, but still very tasty.** People always give such short 'expiration date' on things, and this is no exception. I made za'atar 4 months ago and - guess what - still fragrant and yummy. The only thing that can happen is that it will be less fragrant, but it hasn't been my experience. Don't throw it away just because it has passed its 2 weeks of life.Did you make it?
