Oregano, Mexican

Mexican oregano, like many other herbs, comes from the mint family. In New Mexico and California the leaves of several plants in the Lippa genus are harvested and dried before use. The visual characteristics of Mexican oregano are similar to that of Greek oregano but the aroma and taste have distinctly different qualities.

Oregano is actually a particular herb flavor, rather than a particular herb. There are several species in different families that impart this particular flavor and are known as oregano.

Mexican oregano is a bit stronger, less bitter and less minty than the Greek species. It is widely used in Southwestern and Mexican cooking and is a staple ingredient in our chili powders.

"My spice shipment just arrived. Oh my gosh! Your spice blends are nuts! I could sit and eat them out of the jar with a spoon! I have been put on a extremely low sodium diet and am allergic to garlic, so my past enjoyment of cooking had disappeared into bland, boring, plain dishes. I had begun to dread mealtime. There just isn't much out there in the non-salt spice blend category to inspire me. Not anymore! Just WOW!"
