Product Details

Oregano (Origanum vulgare) is a versatile herb that is widely used in culinary applications and traditional medicine. It is known for its strong flavour, which is a combination of earthy, peppery and slightly bitter notes. Here are various uses, both culinary and medicinal, associated with oregano:

  2. Pizza Topping: Dried oregano is a classic topping for pizzas. It adds a robust and aromatic flavour that complements the tomato sauce and cheese.

  3. Marinades: Oregano is commonly used in marinades for meats, poultry, and fish. It enhances the overall flavour profile of the dish.
