Oregano (Origanum vulgare) is a perennial herb. Its potency is more closely affected by climate and soil than by species. Many subspecies and strains of oregano have been developed by humans over centuries for their unique flavors or other characteristics. Tastes range from pungent and spicy to more complicated and sweet. Mediterranean oregano is milder than Mexican oregano. This Organic Oregano from India is well-balanced, and therefore, versatile for a number of culinary uses. When using dried oregano, crush it a little in your hand to release the essential oils and flavor.
Suggestions: Due to its potency, a little Organic Oregano goes a long way. A wonderful herb to add to pasta dishes, especially tomato based. Use it in omelets, breads, roast potatoes, kebabs, chicken, lentils, and endless others. We suggest using this Oregano with one of our pastas, like Baia Organic Pasta, in a tomato sauce.
