Ground Marjoram has an aroma that is at once woodsy and floral, with ethereal top notes of citrus and a touch of pepper. This gentle herb, a member of the mint family, offers a welcoming flavor. It is, at first, grassy and sweet, lingering on the tongue to deliver delicate touches of cool mint and bright citrus. When the flavor fades, it fades into pleasant bitterness, leaving behind a mildly vegetal essence and wisps of fragrance. Our Ground Marjoram has a volatile oil content of at least .5% by weight, and because it is so finely ground, those oils are exposed and ready to deliver flavor straight to a dish.

Marjoram, a Mediterranean herb originally found growing through northern Africa and Asia Minor, has a long history of food and cultural uses. Ancient Egyptians would include marjoram for use in embalming, believing its sweet nature would appease the gods. The mythology of the ancient Greeks says that marjoram was favored by Aphrodite, the goddess of love; young women would sleep with marjoram under their pillows so their dreams would reveal their future husbands, and they would wear marjoram garlands at their weddings. Today, marjoram is used as a fragrance enhancer in soaps and colognes, and is one of the most effective plants for attracting pollinators like bees to a garden.

 

Tips From Our Kitchen

 

Marjoram is a delicate herb and Ground Marjoram, even more so. Use this herb at the end of cooking or as part of a garnish to for the most robust flavor. Roll goat cheese in marjoram and olive oil for a topping for crackers and olives, and serve as an appetizer with herb-roasted mixed nuts. Or, whip goat cheese and olive oil for a marjoram-laced sauce for sturdy vegetables like butternut squash or broccoli. Dress roasted red peppers in marjoram and garlic oil. Mix with black pepper and toasted onion powder and sprinkle over warm flatbreads, roasted chicken, or grilled snapper. Stir into spaghetti with clam sauce for a great herbal finish. Toss over sautéed carrots. Add to a raw tomato sauce and serve with cheese-stuffed raviolis. We also have cut, dried Marjoram Leaf available.

Our Ground Marjoram is cultivated in Egypt.
