Oregano is a herb which is used extensively in Italian and Mediterranean food. Although fresh oregano has an appealing taste, it also works very well when dried.
Oregano goes well in just about any tomato dish. It also compliments vegetables with dominant flavours such as chilli, spaghetti sauce, pizza, zucchini, broccoli and cauliflower.
As with all dried herbs, dried oregano should be kept in a cool, dark place in a tightly-sealed container and used within six months.
It won’t spoil if kept longer, but it will deteriorate greatly with time.
