Herb – Marjoram
Fresh oregano and marjoram are members of the mint family and staple herbs found in a wide array of Greek and Mediterranean recipes. They look remarkably similar and are often confused for one another, but there’s a distinct difference that sets them apart.
Marjoram is actually a sub-species of oregano. It’s a delicate herb with a sweet, floral, lightly spiced fragrance and less pungent than Oregano. Marjoram is commonly used in salad dressings, marinades, and sauces. Because it has a light, subtle flavor, marjoram is best added at the end of cooking.
