Please notify me when this product is available:

Tradition and simpleness n order to achieve the highest quality  and authenticity. This excellent aromatic herb, widely used in Mediterranean cuisine, is distinguished by flavor, fragrance and taste. 

It can be used with pizzas, salads, roast, sauces, meat, fish, dips, potatoes, vegetables, etc. 

 

If you've tried the world's other oreganos, from Greek to Mexican, you will surely enjoy the flavor of this authentic, organic Sicilian oregano. Not as musty as Mexican and less acrid than Greek oregano, in the words of the producer, Gangi Dante, its "aromas will perfume you of the Mediterranean."
Oregano is a member of Lamiaceae, the nectar-producing mint family that includes marjoram, thyme, and lavender as relatives. There are many different species of oregano but Gangi Dante’s dry rocky soil was planted with the spicy, slightly bitter Wild Oregano (Origanum vulgare).

Oregano is a perennial plant which grows up to 20 inches tall, and produces spear branches with purple flowers and round shape, dark green leaves. Oregano prefers a hot, dry climate, dry soils and full sun.

The green to gray foliage and upright stacks are harvested in September just as the small oregano blossoms start to open. Carefully gathered by hand, the branches of oregano are laid on coarse fiber mats protected by canopies to shade them from the direct sunlight and allowing for air circulation. The oregano is gently turned a few times to ensure even drying throughout the drying process until dry to the touch but not brittle. The vibrant color remains and the essential oils are locked in and intensified. The oregano is then tied in bouquet bunches. After drying the oregano has bright flavors with hints of mint, marjoram and lemon scents.

Using your fingertips, gently crush the oregano blossoms over sliced tomatoes, grilled vegetables and potato salad. Wonderful to sprinkle on grilled fish, chicken and roast lamb. Use as a brush with olive oil for added flavor when grilling.

 

Gathered by hand, then carefully dried to maintain the oregano’s vibrant color & intensify its essential oils. Brightavors of mint, marjoram & lemon.

Uses: Gently crush oregano blossoms over sliced tomatoes, pizza, potato salad. Use as a brush with olive oil when grilling.

This incredibly pungent oregano comes from Petralia Sottana on the island of Sicily. Left on the branch to dry, the oregano is intense and wonderfully woodsy.

If you've tried the world's other oreganos, from Greek to Mexican, you will surely enjoy the flavor of this authentic, organic Sicilian oregano. Not as musty as Mexican and less acrid than Greek oregano, in the words of the producer, Gangi Dante, its "aromas will perfume you of the Mediterranean."

Use for seasoning pizzas, tomato sauces, sautéed vegetables, salads, braised dishes and more. Once you taste it, you will be looking for things on which it can be used. 
There is a lot of oregano in this package! I love using it in my homemade tomato sauce and over marinated vegetables and salads. It is definitely a milder, but no less flavorful, taste than the other types of oregano.
We love this oregano and I'm back to order more. I simply snipped the top of the cellophane package it came in & then turn it upside down to shake the oregano onto food. We don't eat many Italian dishes due to food allergies, but use this oregano on everything - salads, sandwiches, veges, even toasted bagels! It has a great flavor that makes me love oregano, whereas before I got this oregano, I didn't use it so much.


This Sicilian Oregano is a great addion to most Italian dishes. It is very fragrant and has a pungent flavor. I use it where ever oregano is called for. I have recently used it in a chili recipe. It was a great addition.

If you are like me, you find dried herbs about as appealing as the stuff they serve up under the Golden Arches. This dried herb is a revelation. It certainly isn't anything like fresh oregano - we have scads of that growing in our garden and it is definitely wonderful stuff. Dried Sicilian oregano is another bird entirely - more intense, more earthy, less vegetal. It's oregano in the basso profundo register, deep pedal point. Rub a pinch of it between your palms and you'll see what I mean. Crush it in your fingers and sprinkle over a pizza just out of the oven, or atop a frittata, or in place of fresh basil on a plate of thickly sliced tomatoes with olive oil and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar. Really intense and really goo

SUPER! NOT LIKE OTHER OREGANO! DO YOURSELF A FAVOR!

This oregano is beyond good. Use this in a homemade marinara-you won't believe what a dance this oregano does with garlic and tomatoes. The way the basil and tomatoes dance together-this oregano makes the tomatoes dance with the garlic as well as with the basil.
