|What a Surprise When I Was Watering Today!|
It is very easy to grow in a container. It was used in Victorian times as a bedding plant. It is a tender perennial here in the 'Burgh. It has a very pungent smell and flavor, a camphorous one. There are lots of people in the Caribbean regions who use it in cooking. I just tasted a flower and I would not use it in cooking. It is too intense for me. If you are interested in trying to cook with it, here is a recipe for Grilled Cuban Oregano Chicken from the Feral Kitchen and the 10 Best Cuban Oregano Recipes from Yummly. Please let me know if you try any of these recipes.
We were much more seasonal today with sunshine and even cold temperatures seem better when there is sun. The wildlife and I got along a bit better today, but I am counting the days until The Herbal Husband returns. Hope you have had a great day. It is December already! I feel like I have glided through this year! You may think so too! OK we are getting closer until I unveil the contents of my annual Herbal Christmas box. It is epic this year! Talk to you soon.
