Marjoram (Origanum Majorana)

Marjoram

Description

DELICIOUS WITH CHICKEN & VEGETABLES

Marjoram has a delicate, sweet aroma and flavour. Use generously.

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.

Quality

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.

Usage

  • Add to cream, white wine, stock and chopped onion for a creamy herb sauce for chicken or pork.
  • Sprinkle olive oil, lemon juice, salt and Marjoram over chicken or lamb before roasting or grilling.
  • Sprinkle onto roasted vegetables.
