How do you use oregano plant?

Oregano is an herb that is used in many Mediterranean cuisines, in the Middle East, the Philippines and Latin America, including Mexico. Traditionally, stems are harvested and dried and the leaves are then stripped from the stems and crushed. However, if you are in a hurry, fresh leaves can be taken from the stems and chopped. If you grow a lot of it, you can simply take cuttings and leave the rest of the plant to grow.

Oregano is most widely-known for its use on pizza, usually as part of the tomato sauce. In Turkish cuisine, oregano is used as an herb on grilled meats and kebabs. Oregano has a stronger flavor than thyme, basil or marjoram (to which it is closely related) so it tends to be used in spicy dishes, particularly for flavoring meats.
