Marjoram is one of the most popular Mediterranean herbs which has long been grown for its culinary and medicinal values. Marjoram has a delicate, sweet-flavour profile with a subtle, pungent (spicy) taste.
Marjoram has a delicate and slightly sweet flavour which is traditionally partnered with meat (namely lamb, veal, beef, pork and chicken), but also complements vegetables, pulses or seafood.
It is important to note, that marjoram does not withstand the cooking process well with heat destroying its flavour and aroma. For this reason marjoram is almost always added at the end of cooking, just before serving.
Selecting the best produce
Fresh, quality herbs, will appear as though they have just been picked with plump looking leaves. Look for produce that has healthy stems with no signs of yellowing or wilting.
0 degrees celcius at 90-100% relative humidity.
It is important that herbs are expertly handled during transportation. Herbs should be kept covered and away from refrigeration fans.
