This oil combines very well with fresh and melted cheese, and it's even perfect to add to fruit salads. Marjoram can be combined with black pepper and juniper to dress meat stews, game and red meat.

TO KNOW MORE
What is Marjoram?
Origanum majorana (Marjoram) is a very hardy evergreen shrub growing 30-60cm high, with descending stems that take root when they touch the ground. The leaves are 10-13mm long, simple, opposite and ovate, and ooze a fragrance when pressed. Marjoram gives off a pungent, bitter smell and has got a camphorated spicy taste. The flowers are small, purple or white, arranged in spikes.
Marjoram is native to Persia, but is grown all over the world as an aromatic culinary spice. It is especially important in the kitchens of Western Europe and the Mediterranean. In some Middle Eastern countries, Marjoram is synonymous with oregano and, in these countries, the names Sweet Marjoram and Knotted Marjoram are used to distinguish it from other plants belonging to the genus Origanum.
