People sometimes wonder why our selection includes three different types of Oregano. Oregano is not just one herb but a generic name used to define over 40 plant varieties worldwide. Botanical scientists say some of the most praised varieties thrive in Greece.
High-quality Greek Oregano grows in high altitudes, where in July and August, you’ll find the inhabitants of our mountainous villages harvesting and drying Oregano. A ritual that has been passed down from generation to generation.
Oregano is highly versatile and can be incorporated into countless Mediterranean recipes, including seafood, tomato-based sauces, grills, and vegetable dishes. In addition, its antioxidant properties make it an excellent ingredient for olive oil marinades. Another way we love to enjoy this Oregano is to crumble some leaves on tomato salads or Feta cheese right before serving. Trust us – the aroma will instantly transport you to the Greek countryside!
For optimal quality, place in an airtight container in a drawer or cupboard. Properly storing your herbs is very important as it expands their life span. Avoid direct sunlight and humidity.
