Marjoram is indigenous to France and the United States and comes from a low growing plant in the mint family. Having grayish green leaves of similar shape, it is often confused with oregano, but by no means is it the same.
Marjoram has a delicate, sweet, pleasant flavor with a slightly bitter undertone and is used as a flavoring for many meat dishes. Try marjoram in lamb, beef and veal dishes paired with parsley, dill, basil and thyme. Great in eggs, tomato based soups and sauces.
