Thyme is a diverse aromatic similar in flavor and aroma to oregano and savory. This fragrant herb has dark green leaves on a woody stem and often a hint of purple on the underside of the leaves. Grown by Julie at Red Wagon Plants, whose masterful growing and culinary skills shine in the outstanding flavor and quality of her herbs.
Commonly found in classically french herb mixes like herbs de provence; marjoram, summer savory, oregano, thyme, lavender flowers, and rosemary, as well as a key flavor in a bouquet garni. Thyme is considered a woody aromatic and is best added in the early stages of the meal prep so as to give time for the flavors release into the dish.

This herb pairs wonderfully with root vegetables, especially carrots. It can also be added to soups or stews (tie the sprigs together for easy removal). Rub on chicken, or use in marinades and dressings. For use in soups and stews the sprigs can be left whole and removed before serving, otherwise, pluck the leaves off the woody stems and chop or leave whole to use in a dish, dressing or sauce.
Store fresh thyme in a bag, wrapped loosely in a damp paper towel, in your refrigerator. It can also be frozen or dried and used at any time.
