Tastes like Grandma's za'atar!
on November 5, 2016
I live in Hawaii, so it's kind of hard to find a good selection of Middle Eastern spices for my old family recipes. I was thrilled to discover a "boutique," organic, spice company offering Za'atar on Amazon (as opposed to one pound bags of stale, mass-produced, non-organic spice mixes.) So far, I've only used it on manoush but I'm very happy with the flavor. I'm four generations removed from my original 19th century Lebanese-immigrant ancestors, so I don't have any experience with genuine food from the region that my family originated from, so I can't say if this za'atar is authentic-tasting. I can tell you that I find it very flavorful, with lots of nuance. It makes my manoush taste like my Grandma's, so that's good. I look forward to trying it in other dishes and I will definitely try other products by the Teeny Tiny Spice Co of Vermont (great name, btw!)
PS - Writing reviews has become an accidental hobby for me, and it always makes my day to know that people find my reviews helpful (and if not, why.)
