Strongly and complexly aromatic, earthy, pungent, slightly bitter and astringent, our Organic Oregano is a robust spice. It is indispensable in Italian, Mexican and Mediterranean cooking. Also great in sauces, dressings, and casseroles. Combine with other seasonings, such as basil and garlic, to season frittatas and vegetables. Our organic bulk oregano leaf is kosher certified and non-irradiated. There are so many plants that are called oregano that some suggest oregano be considered a flavor rather than a particular species. Nonetheless, there are two kinds of oregano that are often used in the kitchen. Both are herbaceous perennials. The most popular is Origanum vulgare, or Mediterranean oregano, which is a member of the mint (Lamiaceae) family. It's also called true oregano, or Greek oregano. The other is Lippia graveolens, or Mexican oregano, a member of the Labiatae family. The Mediterranean variety is closely related to marjoram and similar in taste. In fact, the name means marjoram in Spanish, and it's often called wild marjoram, though it is a different plant. (Oregano has purple flowers, while marjoram has white, if ever you need to distinguish in the garden.)
