FOR THAT MEDITERRANEAN FLAVOUR
Oregano is a popular, sweet-smelling herb widely used in Italian dishes. A versatile, pungent herb with a robust and aromatic flavour, it has a great affinity for a wide range of foods including vegetables, lamb and stuffing. Oregano can be used in fresh or dried form, though the dried form is generally more concentrated in flavour.
In the Philippines, oregano is traditionally used to alleviate coughs.
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'.
Oregano should have a good colour, even sized leaf pieces and fresh aromatic aroma and flavour. Carvacrol is the principal flavour - giving volatile oil.
