OREGANO, MEXICAN - Kosher/Gluten Free



Mexican Oregano stems from the plant Verbenaceae and is only loosely related to Oregano. Mexican oregano has a sweetness and intensity that many chefs prefer to the flavor of the Mediterranean species. This strong flavor and aroma allow it to be used as a substitute for Epazote. Oregano possesses a strongly aromatic and pungent flavor of delicate mint with earthy tones. Used in many tomato-based sauces and on grilled fish and chicken. Oregano can be used on vegetables, pizza, lasagna, wild game and poultry. The leaves are a pleasant flavoring for fish, sausage, tomato sauces, or any recipe requiring a strong oregano essence.
