Oregano, Ground

This husky, olive green powder has plenty of gumption. It’ll circumvent the mightiest of cumin seeds, outwit the most temperamental chile peppers, and cozy up with lemon.

Technically a member of the mint family, oregano eschews mintiness for peppery, citric flavors hinting of thyme. In more moderate climates this perennial is easy to grow and can quickly take over any available patch of land. However, when grown in colder climates the flavor is less robust.

Used primarily in Greek, Italian, Spanish, Mexican and Tex-mex cuisine, oregano lends a peppery, herbal bite to foods. When fresh, it’s used as a finishing spice, whereas dried it’s used at the beginning of cooking to build layers of flavor.

Ground oregano has its use in spice bases and rubs. We love to use it with a mix of salt, thyme, and cumin and rub it all over chicken thighs. Roast them over a bed of Brussels sprouts and, goodness, it’ll be a dinner to remember.
