Pretty little plant related to oregano, with small flavorful leaves used in savory cooking. Some describe Marjoram’s flavor as having a hint of balsam. Try substituting marjoram for oregano in popular items such as pizza, and other Italian dishes. You may be pleasantly surprised! Very popular ingredient in sausage and herb breads. Grown as an annual, but perennial in USDA zones 9 and warmer.
