McCormick Marjoram Leaves, 0.2 oz
This delightful herb is native to the Mediterranean area and is a relative of oregano, but with a sweeter, more delicate flavor. Our marjoram leaves give savory, sweet herb taste to many Italian dishes. At McCormick, we start with whole Egyptian leaves which are carefully dried. The round, light gray-green leaves are pleasantly aromatic with a warm, slightly bitter taste with hints of mint. Marjoram is often added with other Italian herbs to tomato sauces, poultry, fish, vegetables and beans. The French include it in a dried bouquet garni, where it marries with parsley, thyme and other herbs to flavor soups and robust beef stews. In Greek cooking, marjoram seasons lamb, seafood and salads with its sweet, subtle oregano-like flavor.
