"This is my second order for your oregano and I would like to say that it is the "BEST" I have ever used. It is better, much better, than my own home grown oregano. I want to thank you people for a superior product that I absolutely love and so do the friends I share it with...God Bless"   Charles W.,  Plainville, Connecticut

Preheat oven to 325 F.

Heat olive oil in heavy large ovenproof pot over high heat.

Sprinkle lamb shanks with salt and pepper.
