Did you know?
In Greek 'Oregano' means 'Joy of the mountains' from where it is gathered. It is used extensively in Greece and its many varieties are known as 'rigani'. Marjoram is a traditional herb in Bouquet Garni.
Both Marjoram and Oregano should have a good colour, even sized leaf pieces and fresh aromatic aroma and flavour. Carvacrol is the principal flavour - giving volatile oil.
