ORGANIC OREGANO FROM ANCIENT GREEK AREAS 

Greek oregano is called "rigani," pronounced REE-gah-nee. Oregano is sold fresh and dried as cuttings of flower tops and leaves packaged in disposable containers or as dried, ground leaves packaged in sprinkle-pour bottles. But be aware that not all oreganos are the same. Greek oregano (rigani) is a subspecies with the Latin name Origanum vulgare. Look at oregano package labeling to be sure you are buying genuine Greek oregano.
Cooking With Greek Oregano
In Greek cooking, oregano is used in tomato sauces, with meats, fish, cheese, egg dishes, salads, and cheeses and with vegetables like tomatoes, zucchini, and green beans. Oregano is an essential ingredient of countless Mediterranean recipes.
Origin, History, and Mythology
Several varieties of oregano are grown in many different parts of the world from seeds planted in light, dry, and well-drained soils. Historically, as the name implies, Greek oregano originated on the mountain slopes of Greece. It continues to be an important erosion-control plant because its roots reduce soil erosion on mountain slopes. Greek hillsides covered with summer's growth of wild oregano in bloom are a fantastic excursion for eyes, feet, and nose.
The name "oregano" means "joy of the mountain" and has its origins in the ancient Greek " oros" (mountain) and "ganos" (joy).
According to Greek mythology, the sweet, spicy scent of oregano was created by the goddess Aphrodite as a symbol of happiness. In ancient Greece, couples were crowned with garlands of oregano at their wedding. Oregano plants were placed on tombs to give peace to departed spirits. It was also used as a laxative because of its cathartic effect.
