Tahini & Zatar

  • d

I'm getting on a mid eastern kick, and was wondering what brands of Tahini and Zatar people like best - tia

    To me, nothing beats the Osem tahini in a can, with a little lemon juice squeezed in. Thank you.

    1. Just bought some Zatar from Penzey's spice co. and haven't tried it yet although all of their other spices are the best!!!

      1. Authentic za'atar is made from hyssop, a type of wild oregano that grows in the Middle East. You can get it mail-order from Zahava Foods (link below). Penzey's blend uses thyme.
