Ingredients: Descriptions and Photos
Oregano, dried

(Oregano, dried)  Oregano is a member of the Mint family, though the flavor is quite different.  The dried aromatic leaves of the bushy plant can be stored for some time in a tightly sealed jar, for use whenever desired.  We have found some variation in the flavor of oregano leaves, and prefer the Mediterranean variety.  Oregano is used in Italian and Chinese cooking.  See the nutritional information below for "ground" oregano (it was the only oregano nutritional information we could find).

The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!  (d-7)
