General Description: This delightful herb is native to the Mediterranean. With its minty-sweet flavor, this ground is akin to the herb oregano. However, it is milder in flavour than oregano and has a slightly bitter and aromatic undertone. The Greeks valued marjoram as a stimulant and all-around cure for such ills as asthma, indigestion, rheumatism and toothache.
Uses: Marjoram is a terrific addition to a lemon and olive oil marinade for kebabs and a welcome change for oregano in any tomato sauce. It can add a delicious and sumptuous twist to roasted vegetables when sprinkled over it.
