Herb Usage

Used in culinary dishes especially Mediterranean style food, sweet Marjorum has a much more delicate flavour than oregano, and is one of the main constituents of Bouquet Garni. Sweet Marjoram is used extensively in tomato dishes, and is a main constituent in the commercial production of Pizzas. The leaf is good for drying, as it retains a lot of its scent and flavour.
