Fuller's naturally grown oregano is unbeatable for the exquisite flavor, freshness, and essential oils. Oregano is called for in many recipes and we find it important to always have a good supply. Oregano is used primarily in Mediterranean and Latin cuisines.
Throughout most of history, oregano was likely an herb used for its medicinal properties rather in the kitchen. Originally found in Europe and Central Asia. Oregano’s name is said to originate from two Greek words, one that means mountain and the other meant joy, hence became known as “The delight of the mountains.”
It was used by Swedish mountain peasants in their ale to give it a more intoxicating quality and prevent the ale from turning sour. This marvelous herb is an excellent source of minerals like potassium, calcium, manganese, iron, and magnesium.
