Marjoram

Bot.: Origanum majorana

Marjoram (Origanum majorana) is a perennial herb in the family Lamiaceae originated in India that is about 30-60 cm tall.

Nowadays, the aromatic plant is available almost everywhere. Dried and hermetically sealed, marjoram retains most of its aroma. The characteristic flavor of marjoram is attributed mostly to terpinene, pinene and sabinene.

Marjoram is used to flavor meat and fish dishes, soups, legumes, potatoes and sausages such as liverwurst and black pudding (along with thyme).
