Zaatar is staple culinary herb in the Middle East. It gives life to hummus, flatbreads, yogurts, dips, and soups. Often mixed with olive oil, it is brushed over traditional flatbreads. The flavour is reminiscent of thyme, oregano and marjoram. Each region has its own version of zaatar: in some areas it is a blend of herbs and spices while in others it is just one herb from among several varieties depending on the region. Our zaatar is from the mountains of northern Israel where it is popular among both Arabian and Jewish populations. The aroma is truly divine and revered for carvacrol rich oils, a powerful antiseptic. Aromatic leaves can be dried and used for potpourri. Prefers sandy, well-draining soil in full sun. Cold hardy. Ht 16in (40cm).
