You can almost smell the za'atar: http://www.davidlebovitz.com/2013/09/...
Finally finished the DL blog post. Boy does he have the knack for storytelling and transporting the reader. Never disappoints.
Some great tips for using up the Za'Atar I have back at home.
Thanks for posting.
Fascinating. I, too, thought za'atar was a spice blend. The pictures from his trip confuse me. There are a couple of plants that look somewhat like oregano and another several that look like rosemary. They're all labeled as za'atar.
It's both a spice blend and a name for used for a family of herbs that include local thyme and oregano.
I always thought it was just the spice blend too, but a walk through a Lebanese market in Queens yesterday proved otherwise.
In Hebrew, the word has also been adopted to refer to oregano.
