Recently in Israel I asked what the herb used in zatar I was served. The surprising answer was hyssop. I've never had dried or fresh version, I bought a jar with what I think are tiny sesame seeds.
Does anyone use this for making zatar or in any other manner?

  1. Perhaps it's not the hyssop that we are familiar with (hyssopus officinalis) but what, according to Wickapedia, is known as bible hyssop in Israel.
