Granite State Spice Blends
A savory blend of herbs, spices, sumac, and wood toasted sesame seeds with a hint of Diamond Crystal Kosher salt to tie it all together.
This Middle East in origin, this spice blend has global popularity and a wide array of uses. Basically, Za'atar is a condiment, a dip, and a spice blend. There are many variations of Za'atar. Which one is best is debatable. We think that's a matter of personal preference.
Ingredients: Thyme, Oregano, Coriander, Sumac, Sesame, Salt, Chili Flakes
- This could very well be hummus' bestie. A little olive oil and za'atar on top of a nice homemade hummus and some fresh pita to dunk...so good.
- Don't season your food with za'atar and grill over open flame. You'll burn the seasoning. Our recommendation for using this as a seasoning is to pan roast, oven roast, or use it as a finishing blend.
- Rub it on and under your chicken skin before dropping in a hot pan with oil and butter. Adding oil to the butter will prevent the butter from burning. Buerre Noisette is delicious but burnt butter is nasty. Please find a new spice company if you dare to use margarine. That's not how you should roll.
- Add it to ground lamb with pulverized pork rinds and lots of lemon and fresh parsley for a keto kofta (this will be a featured recipe soon).
- Eggs - any style with a little Sriracha....boom....delicious!
