Also called sweet marjoram, its flavor is considered milder but more complex than its relative, oregano. Some describe the flavor as having a hint of balsam. Try substituting versatile marjoram for oregano in many popular dishes, such as Eggplant Parmesan or pizza. You may be pleasantly surprised! Very popular ingredient in German sausage and herb breads. Fun folklore: Legend has it that if you touch marjoram before bedtime, you will dream of your future spouse.
