Fragrant and herbal, with a brisk, woodsy flavor that has a touch of floral qualities and even a hint of pine and smoke, sturdy Mediterranean Thyme is the Little Herb That Could…Go With Just About Anything. A member of the mint family, thyme is closely related to herbs like mint, lavender, basil, and oregano, and pulls aspects of this auspicious family tree into its flavor profile. The essential oils in thyme range from 1.5% to 2% by weight; thymol and the carvacrol are the compounds most responsible for Mediterranean Thyme’s beautiful flavor. These compounds have also had their antibacterial and antiviral properties tested, with positive results.

This pungent perennial is native to the southern Mediterranean region, North Africa and Asia, and has been in use for millennia. Ancient Egyptians used it as part of their embalming process. In Greece, thyme was used primarily for its aromatic qualities; it was burned as a purifying incense in temples, and the smell conferred courage on the supplicants. Roman soldiers would exchange thyme sprigs as a show of respect before battle. In more modern times, Victorian-era British folklore held that thyme patches indicated the presence of fairy dances, and little girls would crouch near patches hoping to see a pixie appear.

 

Tips From Our Kitchen

 

Mediterranean Thyme pairs well with most meats and can hold up to long cooking times, so add it to a roast chicken—or better yet, your Thanksgiving turkey—or braise with a slow-cooking beef or venison stew or pulled pork shoulder. It’s wonderful with eggs, so add to quiche or frittata. Thyme is a signature flavor in Cajun cooking so fire up a pot of gumbo or dig into some jambalaya. Toss feta cheese with olives, olive oil and dried thyme and be a star at your next pot luck. If you prefer, you can get Ground Thyme, too!

Dried Mediterranean Thyme is fairly robust, so start with just a pinch or two so you don't overpower your dish. When thyme dries its flavor concentrates, so if you’re substituting dried thyme for fresh, use about half as much as a recipe calls for.
