Za'atar, a favorite spice blend across the Middle East, is the most recent offering from Los Alamitos, Calif.-based Awaken Savor, Inc. Since the item differs radically from country to country, however, the company, which produces a wide range of salt-free, MSG-free, gluten-free, and preservative-free spice blends and salad mixes, has come up with six varieties, including Jordanian, with cumin and fennel, Israeli, with herbal flavors and lemony sumac; and Turkish, with dill, spearmint and allspice. A 3.5-ounce tin retails for a suggested $7-$8, but for the next month Awaken Savor is running a special introductory offer of an 8 percent discount with a coupon.
