Sicilian Oregano
« on: March 25, 2017, 05:45:16 PM »
I really don't know anything about it, but I was at my pizza supplier picking up cheese and tomatoes and asked if they had good oregano. Smells so different that my usual shaker. I didn't put a whole lot into the sauce as I'm concerned it will be strong. Find out tonight.

I've been wanting to try some for a while. It looks way different than the oregano they sell in the stores.

I didn't buy that brand but mine sure was stronger.

After my first bake, I'm not quite sure where I stand. It did taste good. And at times I'd notice it and be reminded of a familiar flavor I've had before. I think it could be really good, but I need to make sure not to put too much. And the problem with my sauce yesterday was I had too much black pepper which really messed with it. More testing next weekend.

I grow tons of fresh oregano.  I find that if I dry it by hanging it upside down a few days, the flavor is much more potent.  The only thing I can surmise is that possibly it's easier to release those oils when it is in dried form.  Oregano is the only herb that I prefer dried.

I brought home some oregano I picked up in a little grocery store across from my hotel in Palermo, Sicily. Dried, on-the-stem. Had to rub it off. It's the best oregano I have ever tasted on a pizza, at least since I was a kid. Wish I brought home more. Don't recall the brand or I would be looking for it on line.
