marjoram vs oregano
« on: March 15, 2013, 08:54:20 AM »
Hi everyone

Where I live, I find it extremely hard to find oregano. I bought Greek oregano once from Athens, and it was so beautiful. Now I can only buy sweet marjoram where I live.
I wonder if its OK to use in place of oregano? any thoughts?
I'm a home baker.

It should be good. I prefer fresh marjoram to oregano on most things.

I really like fresh marjoram to finish pizzas.
