Whole Dried Oregano Branches

Gangi Dante cultivates a wild variety of oregano that thrives in the rocky soils of Sicily and yields a spicy, slightly bitter flavor. Gathered by hand, the branches are kept intact and laid to dry on coarse fiber mats to lock in and intensify their essential oils. Once dried, this oregano boasts vivid aromas of mint, marjoram and lemon zest. In the words of Gangi Dante, it's "aromas will perfume you of the Mediterranean."

How to use

Use Gangi Dante Crushed Sicilian Oregano to brighten up tomato sauces, pizza or roasted vegetables. We love pairing earthy oregano with the tang of feta cheese. Try it simply sprinkled over blocks of feta marinated in Sapori Divini Extra Virgin Olive Oil or in our recipe for Timilia Busiate with Parsley Oregano Pesto, Cauliflower and Feta.

The oregano looks really good


This oregano is beyond good. Use this in a homemade marinara-you won't believe what a dance this oregano does with garlic and tomatoes. The way the basil and tomatoes dance together-this oregano makes the tomatoes dance with the garlic as well as with the basil.


If you are like me, you find dried herbs about as appealing as the stuff they serve up under the Golden Arches. This dried herb is a revelation. It certainly isn't anything like fresh oregano - we have scads of that growing in our garden and it is definitely wonderful stuff. Dried Sicilian oregano is another bird entirely - more intense, more earthy, less vegetal. It's oregano in the basso profundo register, deep pedal point. Rub a pinch of it between your palms and you'll see what I mean. Crush it in your fingers and sprinkle over a pizza just out of the oven, or atop a frittata, or in place of fresh basil on a plate of thickly sliced tomatoes with olive oil and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar. Really intense and really good.

What A Great Addition!

This Sicilian Oregano is a great addion to most Italian dishes. It is very fragrant and has a pungent flavor. I use it where ever oregano is called for. I have recently used it in a chili recipe. It was a great addition.

Lots Of Flavor

We love this oregano and I'm back to order more. I simply snipped the top of the cellophane package it came in & then turn it upside down to shake the oregano onto food. We don't eat many Italian dishes due to food allergies, but use this oregano on everything - salads, sandwiches, veges, even toasted bagels! It has a great flavor that makes me love oregano, whereas before I got this oregano, I didn't use it so much.
