It's lived in your house for so long that you're practically family. You owe a big thank you to Spanish, Italian, Mexican and Greek people for this staple. Not only are they some of our favorite types of humans, they are also the peoples that have made Oregano as popular as it is today. Oregano goes in almost every type of cuisine in almost every application you can think of. Dried oregano is typically used at the beginning of the cooking process. Chuck a bunch of this into soups, stews, black beans, crock-pots, spice blends, pizza, posole or meat dishes for some of that old world flavor that you need in your life.
