Every so often, Lina gives us some food item.
(If you want to know who Lina is, read here).
This time it was a giant bag of fresh dried oregano.
This morning I started cleaning it, separating the leaves and flowers from the stems.
It took me over half an hour to clean this small jar-full. But I think having the fresh herb for cooking is worth the trouble. Actually, I think I'll give this jar to a friend . . . I like to share unexpected abundance!
