The herb can be used either fresh or dried but beware the fresh herb, the taste is very strong! I have had my Greek Oregano plant for about 3 years. It’s a perennial herb which means it can survive our winters. Throughout history oregano has for the treatment of colds, influenza, fevers, fungal infections, indigestion, stomach upsets, enteric parasites, and painful menstruation.
A quick simple marinate for meat would be oregano, olive oil, salt, pepper…mix together in a small bowl and marinate…I suggest you pick some up, it’s cheap and adds a lot of flavor!
