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.
Marjoram is also a component of Italian seasoning mix and the French blend known as herbes de Provence.
