Marjoram

 

That herb with the small green leaves and tiny white flowers is sweet marjoram. Sweet marjoram may be similar to oregano botanically, but it has a slightly minty, lemony taste. Marjoram can be used to enhance salad dressings, sauces, soups and poultry. Try adding a bit of fresh marjoram at the end when making your favorite cheese, egg, tomato or bean dishes. If you decide to dry your marjoram for use later, be aware that it is one of the few herbs whose flavor actually intensifies when dried.
