Za’atar is Palestine’s most beloved spice mix. For ages, za’atar and olive oil - with fresh whole grain bread - has been the daily breakfast for Palestinian families.
Canaan’s original za’atar mix is made of oregano, roasted sesame seeds, and sumac. Our za’atar is prepared in women’s cooperatives using home-grown ingredients from Palestinian farmers.
Za’atar is aromatic with oregano, a bit acidic from the sumac, with the nutty flavor of roasted sesame seeds. Combine za’atar with olive oil for a marinade that springs to life with flavor. You may use za’atar as a rub for chicken or with oil as a dressing on salads. Sprinkle it over cream cheese, yogurt, or on toasted bread with olive oil.
