Oregano

Our fresh oregano brings a deep, complicated flavour and savoriness to many cuisines

Our fresh oregano is spicy yet refreshing flavour that contributes to the Italian, Greek, and Spanish cuisine, as well as Mexican.

The oregano plants are perennial, vigorous and very hardy, with darker green foliage. They grow to a height of around 60cm (24in), are extremely drought-tolerant and have white flowers. Complementary spices to oregano are thyme, parsley, chives, basil, and chili.

Oregano’s pungent, spicy flavour makes it a perfect match for tomato based sauces, eggplant, seafood, and grilled meats. Italian dishes are practically synonymous with oregano; it is hard to imagine pasta sauce or pizza without it. Oregano’s rich flavour deepens and melds flavors of soups and sauces without overwhelming the dish. Because it retains its flavour well, oregano can be used either fresh or dried. 

If you are using the fresh herb, use twice the amount of it as you would the dried called for in a recipe. Start with a small amount, a little goes a long way. Taste as you go and add more if needed.

Benefits

Antibacterial Activity: oregano has clear antibacterial properties according to some studies, which is again due to the presence of thymol and carvacrol.

Aids in Digestion: oregano is packed with fiber, so despite its small size, it can have a major impact on your digestive system. Fiber is an essential element of a healthy digestive system, as it can increase the bulk of your stool and stimulate peristaltic motion, which moves food through the digestive tract and excretes it efficiently.
