Thyme Leaf - Whole


Thyme has been used since Hellenistic times. Its name has confused origins, but most likely came from the Greek word "Thymus," which means courage due to Thyme's ability to invigorate the senses. Thyme has also symbolized elegance for the Greeks, chivalry in the Middle Ages and the Republican spirit in France. Thyme has long been used to flavor alcohol and cheese, and is an important spice in clam chowder, bouquets garnis (a bundle of aromatic herbs), soups and stews, including those that use beans or lentils. Thyme blends well with many dishes including meats, vegetables, breads, tomato sauces, flavored vinegar and infused oils.
