Information @ a Glance

  • Marjoram (Origanum majorana, Lamiaceae) is a cold-sensitive perennial herb or undershrub with sweet pine and citrus flavors. It is also called Sweet Marjoram or Knotted Marjoram and Majorana hortensis.The name marjoram does not directly derive from the Latin word maior.
  • Marjoram is a perennial aromatic herb. Its dried leaves and flower tops constitutes the spice. The sweet marjoram is characterized by a strong spicy pleasant odour. The flavour is fragrant, slightly sharp bitterish and camphoraceous.
  • Sweet marjoram is a shrubby tender perennial that grows to about 1' tall with wiry, red-brown stems and downy gray-green aromatic leaves. It produces tiny white flowers on clustered spikes in summer. It is a zone 9 plant and is therefore grown as an annual in cold climates. It does well in a container and can be brought in for use during the winter. It hates winter wet and poor air circulation and likes a temperature of 70F during the day and 60F at nighttime.
  • Marjoram will keep several days in the refrigerator. The leaves can be harvested as soon as the plant starts blooming. The leaves dry easily and can also be frozen. Many cooks prefer marjoram rather than oregano (closely related), as marjoram is much less pungent. To make potpourri, dry leaves whole and then crush to release the scent.
  • Sweet Marjoram tea is used to settle the stomach and to relieve minor digestive upset. Marjoram's stomach-settling properties have led to its use in preventing motion sickness. The tea is also added to bathwater to help relieve congestion and hay fever as well as aches and pains.
  • Wild marjoram is best used as a dried herb - pick the leaves on a dry day and place them in a dark, dry and moderately warm place until they have thoroughly dried. They can then be stored in an airtight container as whole or crumbled leaves - they will retain their flavour for three months or more.
  • Dried marjoram is extremely important in industrial food processing and is much used, together with thyme, in spice mixtures for the production of sausages.
  • Marjoram tea has been used historically for relief from symptoms of hay fever, sinus congestion, indigestion, asthma, stomach pain, headache, dizziness, colds, coughs, and nervous disorders. It is a gently fragrant, calming herb that does have mild antioxidant and anti-fungal properties.
