What is Zatar?
For a recent family gathering I was assigned to make Zatar roasted Potatoes. I must be out of the loop because I had no idea what Zatar was.After looking it up I found it was a middle eastern spice that is very trendy now. So trendy in fact that there was none to be found in the stores in my neighborhood. I found a couple of recipes for faux Zatar and gave it a try.
Zatar has Sumac in it, this faux zatar replaces that with lemon peel.
I have a big family so had 5 lbs, of red potatoes ready to go, you won’t need this many. Not only are we many, we all cook and love to eat. I grow thyme so had plenty dried. for some reason I saved and dried the peels of lemons I had juiced. Sesame seeds needed to be toasted but basically I was ready to go.
