Marjoram – Dried Leaves (70g)
Marjoram (Origanum majorana or Majorana hortensis) is an aromatic herb that has been cultivated for thousands of years. Green, oval-shape leaves grow opposite from each other, forming distinctive clusters, or knots (it’s also known as sweet marjoram), is native to the Mediterranean, North Africa, and Western Asia.
The primary flavor compounds in marjoram are sabinene (fresh, woody), terpinene (citrusy), and linalool (floral). Marjoram has a milder flavor than oregano and tastes similar to thyme, but sweeter and with a stronger scent. It’s warm, slightly sharp and a little bitter.
Dried marjoram is a popular addition to delicate vegetables, tomato-based dishes, such as tomato sauce and pizza and poultry seasoning.
