The Instacart guide to oregano products
A member of the mint family, oregano is a perennial culinary herb that dates back several centuries. Its name means "joy of the mountain" in Ancient Greek, as it was found growing wild on the mountainsides of several Mediterranean countries, including Greece. Since its first cultivation thousands of years ago, the herb has become a popular ingredient around the world. It found its way to the United States after World War II when returning soldiers brought the herb home.
Oregano's flavor intensifies when used dried compared to fresh, although its aroma is stronger when fresh. It has a slightly bitter and earthy taste that can vary in intensity. Certain varieties of oregano can practically numb your tongue, while others that were cultivated for colder climates tend to have a milder flavor. The season, climate, and soil composition can all affect the aromatic oils present, thus affecting the flavor.
Oregano has become one of the most widely used cooking herbs in the world as it's featured prominently in pizza and pasta sauces, but you can also find it in the Mediterranean, Turkish, Italian, Mexican, and Greek cuisine. Unlike most herbs, it's typically sold in dry form, but you can find fresh oregano packaged with other fresh produce.
