Our zesty, bright Oregano Flower Buds come from Turkey, were they are picked by hand just before they open into oregano flowers. These tiny pinecone-shaped buds have everything we love about oregano, but with a particularly beautiful spicy, hoppy twist. Crumble into salad dressings and over pizza and pasta, roast chicken and meat marinades, or just sneak them into your grilled cheese. These buds will quickly become a pantry staple.
I hope this isn't a duplicate review. I haven't been great with reviews and am trying to catch up. This is one of the first items I tried from B&B and it sealed the deal!! It goes in everything... everything! I have purchased a few for gifts as well. So very different from other dried oregano... even better than what I grow in the garden... different and delicious! As one of my friends who used theirs said, it fills the house with such a wonderful aroma... yes, so good. If you haven't tried this one, please, try it and you will see how fabulous it is... in everything! :-)
A Dried Oregano Unlike Any Other
I've always enjoyed oregano at restaurants... but hated the astringent and soapy taste from store-bought dried oregano. Because Burlap and Barrel's spices have never disappointed me, I gave these Oregano Flower Buds a shot! I love that you grind these for each use - it's a great way to unleash that bright and fragrant oregano. After one use, I realized that THIS was the flavor I loved so much in Turkish and Georgian cooking... I was amazed that this dried version captured that fresh flavor. So far I've sprinkled this over roasted tomato pasta as a finishing seasoning, and it was excellent. I can't wait to try it with more recipes that call for oregano... I feel like this has opened up a whole new culinary world for me!
Amazingly fresh oregano
While it’s a bit of work to get a teaspoon of oregano with these freshly ground Turkish Oregano Buds, the exercise is made enjoyable with the aroma wafting up to your nostrils. I would use this for garnish or barely cooked food - the distinct flavor profile would be lost in a soup or stew.

Fresh and very floral!
