A native of the Mediterranean, marjoram is one of the most often used herbs in the cuisines of Europe. It has a subtle flavour and aroma - not as distinct as oregano but more distinct than thyme. Sweet marjoram is the most widely available and usually referred to as "marjoram". It has oval, pale green leaves (2.5cm approx) and a delicate, sweet flavour.
