Oregano, Cut & Sifted
Mexican oregano, also called wild marjoram, is a perennial member of the mint family native to Europe, Asia and the Mediterranean region. Mexican oregano shares a similar flavor profile with its cousin, Greek oregano, but is a different species of plant native to Mexico, Central and South America and is more closely related to lemon verbena. As such, it has a mild citrus-like quality, combined with a hint of pine.
In addition to cooking, Mexican oregano is used to prepare infusions and oils.
