Description

Oregano widely used in Mediterranean cooking especially Greek cuisine. Our oregano comes from around Pteleos where it is grown at above 3000ft. The name of the herb comes from the Greek words “oros,” meaning mountain, and “ganos,” meaning joy. Grown in its natural environment it gains from the high level of sunlight, making it taste far stronger than oregano grown in colder climates. Some uses for it may include:

  • Sprinkling over meat or chicken for flavour
  • Using in marinates or stuffing
  • Chopping and mixing it in bread dough to make herby rolls
  • Adding it fresh to salad

Start with a small amount as too much may make food bitter and if used in cooking, use towards the end of the cooking process for maximum flavour. Oregano has been used in cooking to add flavour for thousands of years, it may have a number of health benefits with claims associated with its potent antioxidants and anti-bacterial properties.
