What exactly is Israel's Za'atar spice?

Asked 3 years ago

I was looking up an Israeli recipe when I read that it required Za'atar spice, what is it? Is it possible to blend the spice myself or would I have to order it in?

Za'atar is a spice blend that is loved throughout the Middle East. The Israeli version is a simple mix of herbs, toasted sesame seeds and sumac. This blend is usually made from grinding together white sesame, sumac, Turkish oregano, dill, thyme and kosher salt. It is enjoyed over fish, chicken or vegetables.
