Sweet, mild flavor fresh or dried!
Marjoram (also called wild marjoram, pot marjoram, joy of the mountains, and wintersweet) is an elegant and versatile culinary herb with a fragrance similar to oregano, but sweeter and with a hint of balsam. Wonderfully aromatic, marjoram is great with veal, beef, lamb, fish, and poultry as well as vegetables, potatoes, and mushrooms. It complements garlic, onion, thyme, and basil and is often used as a substitute for oregano. Appropriate for containers or the herb garden, marjoram is not difficult to start from seed and is delicious both fresh and dried!
