Oregano, one of the most popular herbs worldwide, is a member of the mint family and often called wild marjoram. It is a small herb with dark-green leaf and is known by its bold, warm, balsamic herb flavour, with a slightly bitter taste. The ground version is often used for convenience. Its strong flavour marries well with tomato and basil making it a vital ingredient for authentic Italian and Greek cooking. It is also perfect addition to garlic for Mediterranean, Philippine and Mexican cuisine.
