Not oregano at all, this native North American herb is much more intense, with flavours and fragrances suggesting thyme, sage and mint as well as oregano. Rub it briskly between your palms to release the aromatics and use it sparingly in soups, sauces, stews and marinades, Since this herb is known in Latin America (and in most Mexican cookbooks) simply as oregano, cooks are often puzzled as to why their Mexican dishes prepared with oregano purchased here lack the redolence of the original.
