You will find the marjoram adds notes of citrus and pine to the soup while the parsley adds fresh tones. Using herbs in soup is something which has been done for centuries, ever since people realized herbs added another dimension to the food’s overall flavor. Herbs also have health benefits, which is another reason for using them. Fresh herbs are usually added near the end of cooking while dried herbs go in near the beginning, the reason being fresh herbs have a delicate flavor which can be destroyed by the cooking process but dried ones are improved by it instead.
