One of Greeks favorite!

One of the key cornerstones of Greek cooking, oregano has been used for thousands of years. The ancient Greeks prized oregano for its culinary and medicinal properties and used the herb in its fresh and dried forms, as well as its potent oil.

Unsurprisingly, oregano still features heavily in many modern Greek dishes, from traditional horiatiki salad (Greek salad) to lamb kleftiko.

Our carefully selected leaves are hand-picked to ensure that you receive only the very finest quality. You can use them directly to cook delicious fresh dishes – or why not try combining it with olive oil to create a wonderful aromatic oil that you can drizzle over your meat or fish dishes to give them an exquisite lift of flavour?

This handy 30g pack offers secure resealing to help protect the herb and preserve all the wonderful aromas. We hand select the very best leaves and dry them naturally to ensure you always get an incredible quality product. It also looks great on display!

The word “oregano” comes from the Greek “oros” (mountain) and “ganos” meaning bright. The small, shrubby plant grows well in a range of European climates, including on mountainous peaks.

The dried form of the herb provides a powerful punch of flavour, and also boasts a lot of health benefits, including the fact that it contains iron, manganese and antioxidants. There is even a healthy dose of omega-3s, which might explain why it has been used in many forms of traditional, herbal remedies.

Greek Oregano

There are actually different varieties of oregano. Whilst the Greek variant is the most common, and considered the “true oregano”, there are other milder varieties. The herb is prized for its warm, rich flavour, with a powerful tang. Although it is considered to be a quintessentially Greek herb, Oregano is also popular in many other cuisines and is commonly used in Sicilian cooking and southern Italian dishes to add a warm, spicy tang to rich tomato-based sauces. You’ll find that it makes a wonderful addition to a hearty Marinara sauce for your pizza or pasta dishes.

Because oregano oil has antioxidant, antifungal and antibacterial properties, it was used in ancient cultures for medicinal purposes. Its first recorded use was by the ancient Assyrians, in around 3000 BC. In modern times, oregano oil can still be used in food preparation as a powerful natural preservative.

Some tips!

Oregano is a favorite in Greek cooking and works well with salads, fresh fish, and meat dishes.
