Marjoram. What an Herb!!!

jarona | Feb 8, 201304:15 PM     29

So yesterday I'm in the grocery store--an in quite the hurry. Since I have a tendancy to not pay too much attention to detail when I'm rushed, what I thought was fresh thyme, was actually a bunch of marjoram--which I didn't realize till I got home.
Now. I love cooking with fresh herbs--but it is always either thyme, savory, rosemary, basil, bay leaf, cilantro--but I've never used this marjoram. When I realized my error, I was so surprised by the scent. This herb smells like old-school church insence! Anyway, I just made a mushroom soup and used quite a bit of this marjoram..this could become my new favorite herb?
So fellow CH'ers--what do you use marjoram in? I am really curious!
