Spice Journey

Ginger stands out as a spice due to its impressive versatility, poignantly biting flavor, and numerous health benefits. Nothing is quite like it, and we would be remiss not to at least scratch the surface of this spicy root. 

Oregano is another member of the mint family, just like Basil, the herb we explored last time. Though it’s native to the Mediterranean region, it is commonly found in other temperate climates in the Northern Hemisphere. Dried oregano is most popular since it will not wilt and its flavor is more intense than when it’s fresh. You will find it beneficial to have in your kitchen as it pairs well with other members of the mint family: basil, lavender, mint, marjoram, and many more. That makes it a staple! 
Earlier, we went to the Levant region to learn about thyme. Now, we can circle back to Italy, where basil is a principle herb in cooking. Basil and thyme are actually both part of the mint family, along with rosemary, sage, and lavender. That’s why you’ll often find them together in the same recipes. But particularly, Ocimum basilicum, has a fascinating past and a delicious present that can be used to improve your future cooking.
