All in good thyme! Thyme has its origin from the Greek word, thymon, which means “courage” and was a symbol of elegance and grace. Thyme is equally delicious fresh or dried. It has an herbaceous and slightly floral aroma and powerfulpine, mint and lemon flavour with a lingering mouth-freshening sharpness. The dried leaves are a green-brown colour and make a great addition to soups, stews, stuffing and sausages. It also adds a meaty note to mushroom and lentil burgers. 

Thyme has wonderful medicinal properties and can be used in a hot drink to sooth a sore throat, painful cough or bronchitis. Also good for colic, arthritis, upset stomach, stomach pain (gastritis), diarrhea, bedwetting, a movement disorder in children (dyspraxia), intestinal gas (flatulence), parasitic worm infections, and skin disorders. It is also used to increase urine flow (as a diuretic), to disinfect the urine, and as an appetite stimulant.

How to Use: Thyme can be added early on in cooking as it takes time to release its flavour. If a recipe asks for fresh thyme, substitute with approximately one third of the amount of dried thyme.
