Oregano, which has some of the highest antioxidant levels of all spices, is renown for its culinary and medicinal uses. But if you thought the only way to enjoy oregano was in a pizza or a gyro, think again. 

This oregano butter bakes the spice into butter form, allowing you the freedom to incorporate it into any dish in place of regular butter for an oregano-infused goodie. Make sure you use the highest quality spice that your budget allows for the strongest butter.
