HEIRLOOM Hailing from the Mediterranean and reminiscent of oregano, za’atar is a delectably hardy perennial, impressively self-sufficient once established. Delectable both fresh and dry, Za’atar is both an herb and an exquisitely flavorful blend of diverse spices often including sesame, sumac, sea salt and sometimes coriander, cumin and other green herbs like thyme and oregano. We love to grow our own Za’atar and blend our own Za’atar as well! Similar to oregano, Za’atar is low growing and with velvet leaves, thriving in containers and partial sun as well as raised beds, gardens and orchards. For millennia, Za’atar as well as oregano have been used medicinally as an antiseptic as well as for stomach and respiratory ailments in addition to her beloved versatility in our kitchens.
