Unlike some herbs, whose characteristics mellow when they dry, oregano’s flavor and aroma actually intensify. Bitter with a slight lemon highlight, oregano is a member of the mint family. Although you’d never know it from the way it tastes.
We source our Spice Islands® oregano from Mexico because of its high volatile-oil content. And only harvest the plants at the peak of their vitality to ensure the most pungent flavor and piercing aroma.
Oregano complements a variety of foods but shines in Mexican, Italian, Mediterranean and Middle Eastern dishes.
