I thought as I was making this that the oregano would be over powering however it wasn't in the end. These are quite spicy and sour and likely good as a small addition to a big meal. If I were to make these again I would halve the recipe as no one wanted more than a spoonful or so in one meal and this recipe makes quite a bit. I would also use the food processor to cut the carrots thinner.
