Zaatar

Zaatar is a spice blend that originated in the Middle East. It has many versions, but the basic ingredients are always Hyssop, Sumac, Sesame Seeds and Salt. Hyssop is a wild herb from the thyme family that was only cultivated in 50 years ago.  

In many places around the world, hyssop was nowhere to be found, and that is why they came up with different local versions with substitutes like regular Thyme and Oregano.

Hyssop is the herb responsible for the health benefits associated with zaatar, which made him known for his cleansing and balancing properties.

You can use it on practically anything, and with the genuine hyssop, you will be amazed with the results.
