Fresh Thyme

Fresh thyme has a way of elevating even the simplest of dishes. It flavors flawlessly & makes a striking garnish. Scatter the leaves about the dish or arrange them in a beautiful bouquet that includes the stems. While it offers bright notes to main dish entrees such as Lemon-Thyme Chicken Pilau & Lemon-Thyme Pork Loin Roast, it can thread a collection of recipes together by perfuming appetizers such as Shrimp & Sweet Corn Buttermilk Fritters with main dish items including Fresh Herb Gazpacho & Caesar Salad With Fresh Herb Croutons to create a well balanced party menu. Learn how to use this versatile herb in a variety of exciting ways.

How To Use Fresh Thyme Leaves In Recipes 

Although I prefer cooking with fresh herbs over dried, thyme is one of those rare selections that can season some items beautifully when used in the right application. It’s a wonderful carrier of flavor in barbecue seasoning blends & can be added to soups during the winter months for a quick from the pantry solution. If you have a window box filled with fresh thyme, snip the amount needed just before using & rinse well under cool running water. If you have purchased a package from the market & long term storage is necessary, wrap any remaining sprigs loosely in a paper towel & store in the vegetable crisper. Avoid placing in the coldest part of the refrigerator to keep the leaves from turning dark in color.

The Technique

Fresh thyme leaves can be removed from the stems by striping the leaves away in a quick downward motion using your thumb forefinger & tossed directly into cold soup applications, appetizers & side dishes. It is not recommended to add the stems to recipes as they tend to be tough & woody but for hot dish applications, they can be tossed in at the beginning of the cooking process. The leaves will fall away from the stems & then the woody portion can be removed just before serving for effortless seasoning.
