It is almost impossible to enjoy breakfast in Palestinian without being offered a taste of thymes and olive oil. Usually, it is served with hot black tea and fresh tomatoes. Thymes (Za'tar) can also be used to season different kinds of meat. GhadeerKholouf grew up in Burqin village in Jenin district and was fed with Zatar since childhood. Today, she carries the tradition of Zatar making in her small house which she set a part of it as a home-stay to host tourists and to secure extra income for her family. To prepare the Zatar, Ghadeer picks the fresh thyme leaves and dries them in the sun. When completely dry, she grounds the thymes, adds sesame seeds, salt, lemon juice, sumac spice and a cup of olive oil to give the Zatar its rich green color.
