Sitting in the living room on a cold winter evening, we smell the warm fresh oregano coming from the kitchen from mom’s home made chili. Oregano has been a traditional remedy for stomach upsets, low blood pressure and insect bites for the Europeans. Derived U.S, it possesses asimilar flavor profile from the Greek word, “oros ganos”, it is an essential spice in Italian, Greek and Mexican cooking. There are many varieties of oregano, including Greek, Spanish, Mexican, Turkish, Moroccan and Italian. It has an herbaceous and camphor-like aroma, with lemony pungent notes.
