Thyme is intensely pungent flavour complements most meats, including chicken and game.
Often used as a primary flavour with lamb, sauces, soups, stews, stuffing, tomatoes and eggs.
Thyme, while flavourful, does not overpower and blends well with other herbs and spices. As with bay leaves, thyme is slow to release its flavours so it is usually added early in the cooking process. Its robust nature means that it can withstand long cooking times and it is a good complement to slow-cooked dishes such as stews and daubes.
Thyme flavour also combines well with other herbs such as rosemary and sage. Use Thyme in stuffing for poultry or lamb or use it chopped in a marinade for olives. A key ingredient in Nature's Choice poultry seasoning.
Thyme is available whole or ground.
