Dried Wild Oregano from Italy
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.
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.
