OVERVIEW
Marjoram is a culinary herb in the mint family. It needs a hot climate to develop its full aroma . Marjoram goes well with thyme, bay leaves, black pepper, and juniper berries. Marjoram is a Greek word meaning “Joy of the Mountain”. According to Greek myth, Aphrodite said that the smell of marjoram was the smell of impending good luck. Greeks also believed that if it was growing on a grave, it was a sign that the departed soul had found happiness. Throughout the middle ages it was worn by bridal couples to signify love, honor, and happiness. It was used in England for many years as an ingredient in snuff, then as a somewhat exotic flavoring for beer.

Marjoram adds a pleasant, sweet flavor to pickles, sausages, lamb, beef, pork, chicken, and fish. It also works well in tomato dishes, stuffings, breads, salad dressings, and chowders. Italian, French, northern African, Middle Eastern, and North American cuisines and spice blends such as bouquet garniand fines herbes often call upon marjoram. As well, it is an ingredient in potpourris and scent bags and sachets, and marjoram oil is used in perfumed soaps.
