Oregano

A wild variety of marjoram, with a very robust flavor. This herb is a native to Europe and also has a slightly musty flavor with a warm welcoming aroma. Used by the ancient Greeks as a antidote to poison, a disinfectant, to make perfumes and as a preservative. Today this herb is highly favored in the kitchen and primarily used in Mediterranean dishes, such as pizza, eggplant and tomato dishes.
