Meet oregano, it brings warmth to dishes, along with a hint of subtle sweetness. It is bold & earthy, savory where its cousin marjoram is sweet. This cultivar is also known as "wild marjoram" in various places.

According to Greek mythology, the goddess Aphrodite created oregano as a symbol of happiness. Called "Joy of the Mountains," the name comes from the Greek words “oros,” meaning mountain, & “ganos,” meaning joy. It is a must-have in Greek dishes. Dried oregano also adds that this-is-Italian flavor that I insist upon with meatballs or any other tomato-based sauce.

Ever since US soldiers returned from World War II with a special affinity for what they referred to as “the pizza herb”, oregano has been a staple on spice racks across America. In fact, sales of oregano increased by 5,200% between 1948 & 1956.
