Origanum, a genus of the mint family, Dried Oregano is an intensified version of its fresh counterpart. In Greek mythology, Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love, created Oregano as a symbol of happiness and planted it on Mt Olympus. Similar to Marjoram, but stronger, Dried Oregano is perfect for Greek or Italian cooking. It works beautifully in slow-cooked dishes, ideal for simmering tomato sauces. Use it on pizzas, pasta, or marinate and grill chicken or lamb. Or Mix with Sumac, sesame seeds, salt and olive oil to create an authentic Zaatar mix.
