Secret pleasures of herbs begotten of Aegean weather. Windy winters which “break” the islands with the sea lead to salty dry summers whose heat can torch rocks. Rough conditions, conditions loved by these herbs, which produce strong spicy flavours full of essential oils. A well balanced combination of island spirits.
Ingredients: Oregano, Thyme, Sage
Greek oregano is considered to be the best worldwide due to the climate and plant’s natural selection. Today, it is used mainly as a spice in food, salads, sauces since it gives them a unique scent and an exclusive taste. Aslo, it is essential to be used in marinating the meat since it adds fiber. It can also be used as a beverage. “Bagatzounis Oregano” is a pure natural product that meets the high quality demands of the consumers and it is a unique seasoning for tasty Mediterranean dishes.
In the kitchen it goes well with fruit salads, yarm, strawberries or melon. It also gives a special scent in chocolate. Less commonly used in salads and sauces. Though that is bizarre since the distinction between mint and spearmint happens only in the Greek language.
