Marjoram is a sweet and subtle spice similar to oregano with its slightly minty, citrusy, earthy flavors.
It is actually in the same family as oregano (the mint family), and in some countries the two are interchangeable, however marjoram is more mild than oregano and better used as a finishing spice at the end of cooking rather than simmered in for the duration of the cooking like oregano. The delicate flavors will dissipate if marjoram is added too early on in the cooking process.
Marjoram can be used wherever oregano is called for, though it especially shines in salad dressings, light cream sauces, and egg dishes. Culturally, marjoram is often used in French and English recipes and oregano is called for in Italian, Greek, and Mediterranean dishes.
Store dried marjoram in a cool dry place and use within six months for best flavor.
