What is Thyme?
- Thyme is a perennial shrub with greenish-gray aromatic leaves. It originates from Southern Europe and countries bordering the Mediterranean but now is found in many areas of the world with temperate climates.
- The Greek word for thyme is derived from a descriptor meaning "to fumigate", which may refer to the aroma generated in the burning of thyme as incense in ancient temples of Greece. Traditional remedies associated with thyme include alleviation of pulmonary diseases. Roman soldiers would bathe in thyme to become courageous.
- Thyme's culinary uses are many. Because of its distinct aroma, this spice is often added to baked goods, stews, meats, garden salads, poultry stuffings, seafood, egg dishes, and in marinades of chicken and fish. Thyme also contributes flavor to a variety of vegetable preparations, such as beans, onions, potatoes, and carrots.
