Oregano

Regular price $9.95
Used primarily in Greek, Italian, Spanish, Mexican and Tex-mex cuisine, oregano lends a peppery, herbal bite to foods. When fresh, it’s used as a finishing spice, whereas dried it’s used at the beginning of cooking to build layers of flavor.

Mexican oregano contains a far higher volatile oil content (primarily of thymol, carvacrol, and menthol). This results in a far more potent oregano. It’s less peppery and less pungent than common oregano, but with a more intense flavor of thyme and hints of mint. The lemony notes present in other oreganos are also diminished here. However, if you need a powerful oregano flavor for sauces and soups then Mexican is the way to go.


Recommended Uses:

Fantastic when added to stewed meat dishes, broths, adobo, soups, kabobs, or spice rubs, this traditionally used Mexican Oregano is also wonderful when added to Posole or Morcilla.
