OverviewThyme is an aromatic plant of which the leaves are used. There are several kinds of thyme, and its flavour is very typical of Mediterranean cooking.
|Use only thyme with fresh green leaves on nice bushy stems.|
|You can use thyme in two ways.|
If you just want its flavour, add a whole sprig to the dish, and remove it after cooking.
|Otherwise, if you want to eat it, you should pick off and use only the small green leaves.|
