ENGLISH WILD THYME has a distinctive and more robust flavour profile than French Summer Thyme and is similar to German Winter Thyme due to its harvesting at the end of its growing season but is harvested wild and not cultivated
LEMON THYME smells strongly of lemon and tastes like lemon. It can be used in any recipe calling for lemon juice, lemon zest or lemon flavouring.
Traditional Culinary Uses for Thyme :-
Thyme is widely cultivated as a herb, grown for its strong flavour, which is due to its content of thymol (Huxley 1992). It retains its flavour on drying better than many other herbs.
Thyme is often used to flavour meats, soups and stews. It is used in French cuisine, where it is an important element in a bouquet garni, as well as in Herbes de Provence. It is also widely used in Caribbean cuisine. In some Middle Eastern countries, the condiment za’atar contains thyme as a vital ingredient.
Thyme is added early in cooking so that its oils have time to be released.
