  • Using fresh Oregano

    In addition to a bumper crop of basil, I have a bumper crop of oregano. I've tried using it fresh and didn't get nearly the flavor I like from dried. I then dried some fresh herb and got what I wanted/expected.

    What is the best way to use fresh oregano supposed: on the pizza after cooking or mixed into the sauce?

    I think oregano is one of the herbs you put in the sauce and then allow to rest for a while so the tomatoes can absorb the taste of the herbs. Thats how I use my fresh oregano anyway.

      You also need to either bruise or cut the oregano, and use about twice as much fresh as you would dry.

        Thanks folks. I'll give those tips a try. I've had the oregano in my garden for several years now... but it only started to really grow since I stopped watering it!
