Marjoram, commonly known as sweet marjoram, is a Mediterranean herb closely related to oregano. In fact, is some parts of the world, oregano is referred to as wild marjoram.
In contrast to the bold flavor of oregano, marjoram has a slightly sweet, citrusy flavor with a pine-like undertone due to the presence of the chemicals pinene and camphor. Use the dried herb to season soups, sauces, dips, pasta, rice and beans.
