Steenbergs Organic Oregano (dried)
Steenbergs Organic Oregano is a classic rendition of this robust tasting herb, which we source from organic farmers in Turkey. For traditional Italian cooking, the sweet strong smell of Steenbergs Mediterranean organic oregano cannot be beaten. Try some organic oregano on baked chicken, pork or fish. Steenbergs organic oregano usually comes from sunny Turkey. Mediterranean oregano should not be confused with Mexican oregano which is a different species of shrubby plants.
Oregano is stronger in flavour than marjoram and is better dried than fresh as the flavours intensify. Oregano works well with tomatoes, just like basil, and because of this affinity to tomato, the mixture of basil and oregano have pretty much become the universal base flavours for pizza and pasta. Oregano also works well with aubergine, courgette and sweet peppers, so you will find its use in moussaka, for example, while beef, lamb and pork also enjoy being rubbed with olive oil then some oregano, garlic and a smidgeon of freshly ground pepper before cooking.
