An herb belonging to the mint family. It is similar to oregano and mild in flavor.
Native to the Mediterranean region and Asia Minor.
Researchers are not certain how marjoram traveled from the Mediterranean region to England, but once there, it was used in tobacco and beer.
Marjoram can be found in three different varieties: wild marjoram (oregano), sweet or knotted marjoram, and pot marjoram.
