An aromatic herb, oregano is a herb native to the Mediterranean. In Greek, it means "joy of the mountain" as it is found growing wildly on the hillsides of Greece and Italy. It has strong flavours and a pungent smell that goes well with Mediterranean dishes to elevate flavours.
Available all year round.
For optimum keeping, wrap oregano in newspaper or a damped cloth and place them in the dry crisp area of the refrigerator.
