Introducing our Halabi Zaatar, a distinguished spice blend that hails from the storied city of Aleppo, a culinary gem in the heart of the Middle East. This blend is a testament to the rich culinary traditions of the Levant, offering a unique taste profile that captivates the palate and transports you to the bustling markets and ancient streets of Aleppo.
At the heart of our Halabi Zaatar is a blend of wild thyme and oregano, each carefully selected for their aromatic and earthy qualities. These herbs, reminiscent of the Levantine landscapes, are combined with toasted sesame seeds, which lend a nutty, creamy texture and depth to the mixture. Sumac is also a key component, contributing a tangy, lemon-like zest and a beautiful crimson color that is characteristic of this regional zaatar.
What sets Halabi Zaatar apart is its delicate balance of flavors. The blend is crafted to honor the traditional methods and ingredients of Aleppo, resulting in a zaatar that is both authentic and rich in heritage. It is versatile in use, perfect for sprinkling on traditional Middle Eastern flatbreads, seasoning meats and vegetables, or adding a flavorful twist to dips such as labneh or hummus.
Halabi Zaatar is more than a spice blend; it's a celebration of the culinary artistry and cultural richness of Aleppo. Each pinch of this zaatar is a homage to the ancient city's enduring spirit and its contribution to the world of gastronomy.
