What is this "herb?"
My neighbour at the bottom of my garden is a great guy. Always full of advice, helpful and willing to share, he has the greenest thumb of anyone I've ever met. He can get anything to grow and thrive. He, however, seems to have his own names for pretty much everything he grows in his yard!
He gave me this "Oregano Bush" that he called "Spicy Oregano." The growth is definitely bush-like and the leaves bear no resemblance to the ground-crawling Oregano I'm familiar with. It also flowers white. The flavour is quite strong and the aroma is quite pungent... almost in the realm of paint thinner-like. When I cook with it, I need to be very careful with how much salt I use, as it seems to up the saltiness of the finished product.
Any thoughts on what it actually is????
