- Grind up the dried oregano until very fine; measure out 3 tablespoons.
- Melt butter in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Lower heat to medium-low and stir in oregano. Carefully pour in water. Simmer gently, stirring every 20 minutes, until flavors combine, about 2 hours in total. Remove saucepan from heat.
- Wrap a piece of cheesecloth around a glass, ceramic, or metal bowl and secure with a rubber band. Pour butter mixture through cheesecloth into bowl. Remove rubber band and carefully squeeze excess butter out of the cheesecloth, making sure oregano is strained out.
- Cover bowl with aluminum foil and chill in the refrigerator until butter solidifies above water, about 4 hours. Break the butter in half with a knife and transfer to a plate. Cover. Discard water.

- Cook's Notes:
- You must use regular full-fat butter or it won't re-solidify right.
- If you prefer to keep the herb in the butter for stronger flavor, skip covering the bowl with cheesecloth in step 3.
