A Zaatar Update

14 Sep

Zaatar has an interesting history. It’s actually a plant. In the South of Lebanon, you’ll find zaatar farmers growing large parcels of the stuff. It grows wild in the mountains, as well.  So, zaatar is both the mixture (zaatar, sesame seeds, and sumac) and the main ingredient.

When I saw the picture of it, I soon recalled the plant. My mother’s table had been no stranger to it.

Look away, now.  I think I’m blushing.
