Bulk Marjoram Cut & Sifted, Organic

Origanum majorana

Marjoram is a perennial herb in the mint family that occurs naturally in southern Europe and throughout the Mediterranean region.

The herb is commonly used in Middle Eastern cooking, often in combination with its botanical cousins — basil, oregano, savory and various mints. It is a key ingredient in za'atar, a Middle Eastern seasoning blend that includes salt, dried sumac and ground sesame seeds.

Marjoram is also a component of Italian seasoning mix and the French blend known as herbes de Provence.

Marjoram, also called sweet marjoram, is a low-growing perennial herb that is native to the Mediterranean region. As its botanical name suggests, it is closely related to the "pizza herb" otherwise known as oregano. Like many of its Mediterranean cousins, marjoram is a member of the mint family.

This versatile herb is commonly grown as a perennial or annual in kitchen herb gardens around the world. In cooking, marjoram lends a warm, peppery flavor to cheese, eggs, potatoes, dips, sauces, soups and stews.
