Parsley is one of the most commonly used herbs. It provides a contrast that enables other flavors to stand out, and is used for spice in cuisines including garnishing, salads, stocks, and sandwiches.
If you are a pizza lover, then you will be familiar with the assertive flavor of oregano. You will also come across oregano in a classic Greek salad. More pungently flavored and noticeable than thyme, oregano has lemon and floral flavors along with some earthiness.
Like thyme, oregano is at its best when used with garlic and herbs such as thyme, parsley, basil, bay and marjoram, making it popular in various Mediterranean cuisines, not least, Italian, Spanish, Greek and more rustic French recipes. It is also used in Mexican cooking where it pairs well with cumin and cilantro.
As it is more pungent, oregano is best with meats such as beef, lamb or pork.
The fresh oregano leaves can be used as salad greens or in the way that you would use cilantro or fresh basil.
Like thyme, you can also freeze fresh oregano leaves in an ice cube tray or dry the leaves out either by hanging the stalks, or by just removing the leaves and drying out on a cookie sheet. Once the oregano is completely dry, place it in an airtight container away from any heat or light sources. It should keep its flavor for around six months or so.
