Hestia dried oregano is organic oregano grown in Trikala, Thessaly, and hand-picked for top quality. It will give your recipes that traditional Greek note they were missing!
A symbol of joy and happiness in ancient Greece, oregano is one of Greek Nature's iconic plants. A perennial undershrub, oregano is ever present in the Greek countryside from the rugged mountain slopes of the mainland regions to the sun-drenched, rocky soil of the islands. There are eight strains of the Origanum species that can be found self-growing in arid parts of the Greek mainland and islands. There's little difference between oregano strains and it has to do mostly with the colour of their flowers. In appearance, all strains are more or less the same. Oregano's aromatic and healing properties are also common to all Greek oregano strains and owe their existence to such active ingredients as carvacrol and thymol which also contribute to oregano's flavour. Oregano is the Mediterranean's most popular herb and is positively worshipped by Greek cuisine devotees. Hestia organic oregano grows in Trikala, Central Greece. It is harvested by hand with extra care so that its dried form will reach you with all of its sensory traits intact. It is an all-natural traditional product that is allowed to grow unperturbed by pesticides and chemicals. Oregano is characterised by small, green oval leaves, tiny, white-flower clusters, and an unparalleled, warm balsamic aroma. However, stopping at its sensory characteristics would be an injustice as it also has numerous healing properties and nutritional elements.
Oregano is a seasoning rich in Vitamin C, magnesium, potassium, iron, phosphorus, and beta-Carotene. In Greece, it has been traditionally used as a folk remedy due to its healing, analgesic, antiseptic, and anti-rheumatic properties. To a large extent, those herbal remedy properties of oregano are corroborated in the writings of ancient Greek and Byzantine physicians. Celebrated since ancient times, oregano transfigures recipes into tantalizing, Mediterranean temptations! For a taste that is irresistible, add a small amount of your Hestia oregano to meats, salads, pies, and potatoes.
