Oregano, Mediterranean Whole
1 lb bag $9.80
5 lb bag $49.00
Mediterranean Oregano and Mexican Oregano might share a name and look similar, but they couldn’t be more different in origin or use.
What people typically think of as just plain oregano grows throughout the mediterranean region. It is a member of the mint family and has a mild but distinctive flavor, varying from sweet to bitter. Mexican oregano is its counterpart and related to lemon verbena. Due to its stronger flavor, it is a good addition to Latin, Spanish and Tex-Mex dishes such as chili and dry rubs.
Oregano is a crucial herb in a wide variety of dishes, from pasta sauces to dry meat rubs. No traditional poultry rub or brine is complete without it, it adds necessary character to pizza sauces, and goes great mixed into a lamb rub. Mix it into your herb blends for artisan breads, or season vegetables and stews.
Oregano is very bulky, so Mount Hope’s one pound bag provides quite a bit of flavor for your kitchen’s wide array of culinary creations.
