Greek Oregano is known to be the most pungent and the best for culinary usage.  The name ‘Oregano’ comes from the Greek words “oros” (mountain) and “ganos” (joy).  Oregano didn’t become popular in the U.S until the soldiers began bringing it home with them from WWII  as the “pizza herb”. It has been used in southern Italy, Greek and Mexican cuisine for centuries, and has now become a staple in American cooking.  Oregano is a rich source of fiber and vitamins.
