Thyme | Bountiful
An aromatic herb of the mint family, thyme is often used to flavour a wide range of foods, including poultry, fish, eggs, meats, sauces, soups, vegetables, cheeses, and pastas. Bountiful fresh thyme has a pronounced, concentrated herbal flavor with sharp grass, wood, and floral notes (like lavender and rosemary).
Thyme can be used in its whole form, or by picking individual leaves from the stem with a gentle pinching motion at the base of each leaf cluster. Thyme leaves can be added, whole or chopped, to a dish at any stage of cooking. The longer they cook, however, the more flavor they’ll provide. Thyme stems are fibrous and won’t break down during cooking, so if using whole thyme stems, pick them out and discard before serving.
Thyme is one of the richest sources of antioxidants among herbs. It is also full of vitamins A, B, C, E, and K, as well as beta-carotene and folic acid.
You can also get them with other herbs in a herb bundle here.
