Wild Mountain Oregano
Our wild moutnain oregano now available in large size 11 oz pack.
The word oregano has Greek roots as it comes from the Greek words oros (gr. mountain) and ganos (gr. joy). Oregano has been used for centuries in culinary recipes, but has several important medicinal properties as well. Wild Olea Greek oregano is definitely NOT the same as the type found in grocery stores. It is amazingly fresh and aromatic with a peppery, zesty, lemony flavor, vibrantly green and pungent. It is grown at high altitude on mount Parnon free of pollution, where the soil is mineral rich. Furthermore, it has an abundance of antioxidants, plus potent antiseptic, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, and carminative (digestive) properties. It also contains vitamins E and K, fiber, iron, manganese, tryptophan, and omega-3 fatty acids (source: Journal of Agricultural Chemistry, PLOS ONE, Natural Medicines Comprehensive Database).
Uses: Try sprinkling our oregano on your salads or pizza. Add it in marinades to enhance the flavor of your vegetables, fish, and meat. Or simply combine it with our Olea Gold for dipping warm toasted bread. This is a favorite snack of the Chronis family!
