Additional Information:
The marjoram plant is an aromatic herb known for its aroma-therapeutic and culinary uses. Its botanical name means “joy of the mountain” in Greek, and was actually first used to make wreaths for use as wedding flowers. This was because Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love, was believed to wear wreaths made from marjoram.

Marjoram is classified as a perennial and can grow up to a height of 10 to 12 inches. They have woody square stems, an upright appearance and opposing pairs of leaves.2 It’s closely related to (and often confused with) oregano because both have similar appearances. To make things even more confusing, their botanical names defy logic. Origanum vulgare, which is commonly known as the common oregano, is also known as wild marjoram.

The beauty of marjoram is that it can be added to various dishes that use different cooking methods, such as:
Soups: It gives vegetable soups more flavour.
Roasted meats: Marjoram can add a herbal aroma to roasted meats, such as chicken.
Sauteed vegetables: Side dishes such as sauteed vegetables become more flavorful with a dash of marjoram.
Marinades: Upgrade the taste of your marinated meat and fish dishes by adding marjoram to the marinade.

Adding marjoram to your garden can reap benefits as well. Not only does it create a beautiful atmosphere, but it also helps attract butterflies and other insects that feed on pests and decomposing matter, and can even pollinate plants.

Storage Advice:
“How long do dried herbs last?”
Depends on both the type of herb and the conditions under which they are stored. Correctly dried and stored herbs do not actually spoil. But over time, they will lose their potency, aroma and flavour.

As a general rule, whole dried herbs (not been ground) will last much longer than ground and can last for 1 to 3 years. It is also never a bad idea to freeze any spare herbs, try to remove as much air as possible and make sure it is kept sealed in the freezer to avoid moisture.

Here are some tips for maximising the shelf life of your herbs:

  • Store in an airtight container.
  • Store in a cool, dark cupboard.
  • Store away from direct heat or sunlight.
  • Keep lid tightly closed when not in use.
