The inspiration for this smokey and aromatic herring is one of the most beloved Chassidic Masters; Reb Meshulam Zusha of Annipol (An-e-pole) (1718-1800). The Rebbe Reb “Zisha” as he is sometimes called, is the younger brother of the famous Rav Elimelech of Lizhensk (La-zh-ensk), author of Sefer Noam Elimelech. It is commonly said that that the title to Rav Elimelech’s sefer is an homage to his holy brother, for the word “Noam – Sweet” (heb.) translates into Yiddish as the word “Zis“.
This smokey and sweet herring is prepared with zaatar, a blend of sun dried hyssop, salt, sesame seeds and dried sumac. Besides its culinary use Zaatar is also believed to have healing properties. The strong herb flavor is balanced with the natural sweetness and intoxicating aroma of whole cloves.
Each container is prepared individually by hand, ensuring a consistent quantity and quality throughout.
