Thyme is an aromatic evergreen herb, with many traditional and culinary uses. The most common variety is Thymus vulgaris. It is a member of the mint family (Lamiaceae), and a relative of oregano. Thyme is commonly grown all over the world but originated in the Mediterranean. This rubbed, dried thyme has a herbaceous, savoury flavour and a pungent aroma.
How to Use:
Thyme is a traditional ingredient in many cuisines and can be used in a bouquet sachet. Add thyme to use in soups, stews and sauces. Thyme is also a beautiful accompaniment for baked fish or fried chicken. It imparts a delicious taste to roasted pumpkin, carrots and potatoes. Mix thyme with a little parmesan cheese and crushed garlic, before tossing through cooked potatoes or sprinkling over focaccia. Dried thyme can also be steeped in boiled water to make a traditional herbal beverage.
