Gangi Dante Oregano Mazzetto Grown in Sicily's Madonie mountains and dried on rattan mats, these oregano branches and leaves impart a lovely, subtle flavor to sauces ($6; markethallfoods.com).
This incredibly pungent oregano comes to us from Petralia Sottana on the island of Sicily. Left on the branch to dry, the oregano is intense and wonderfully woodsy. If you've tried the world's other oreganos, from Greek to Mexican, you will surely enjoy the flavor of this authentic, organic Sicilian oregano. Not as musty as Mexican and less acrid than Greek oregano, in the words of the producer, Gangi Dante, it's "aromas will perfume you of the Mediterranean."
