A savory bite in each forkful.
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.
