The island of Amorgos, located in the Aegean Sea, is home to one of the most special oreganos that we have ever tasted. The remote location of Amorgos works like a natural filter, that’s why this variety has developed a very particular flowery fragrance. Our harvesters select the buds one by one, following an industrious process that allows you to revive the aromas of this herb right when needed, by rubbing it with your fingers just before use. Collected by hand and dried naturally, it is available in limited quantities.
This Oregano pairs well with vegetable salads and pasta. The best companion of fresh goat cheese and simple bruschettas. Use in small quantities as this herb’s concentration in essential oils is particularly high. A wise old trick says that a pinch of oregano facilitates digestion.
