Marjoram, also known as Knotted Marjoram and Sweet Marjoram, is a compact herb in the mint family that is perennial in the Mediterranean region but often behaves as an annual when cultivated in colder climates. This popular culinary herb is found in many Italian, Greek and French dishes, as well as in Middle Eastern cooking. Marjoram lends a spicy, peppery flavor to foods and combines especially well with lavender, bay, winter savory, basil, thyme, rosemary and mint. In addition to use as a seasoning, marjoram is used in tea blends.

Marjoram is a perennial herb in the mint family that occurs naturally in southern Europe and throughout the Mediterranean region.

The herb is commonly used in Middle Eastern cooking, often in combination with its botanical cousins — basil, oregano, savory and various mints. It is a key ingredient in za'atar, a Middle Eastern seasoning blend that includes salt, dried sumac and ground sesame seeds.
