We Grow Thyme

Sold in 1 oz. bunches

Thyme is a fragrant herb with small, fragrant leaves and thin, woody stems. It grows very close to the ground and is a perennial which means it comes back every year if we have a mild winter.

Thyme holds up well in cooked recipes and is common with savory beans, cabbage, carrots, chicken, corn, fish, lamb, potatoes, soups, and stews. Our favorite recipe that requires thyme is called Hoppin’ John Soup. Fresh leaves will keep for up to a week stored in a plastic bag in the refrigerator. Thyme dries very easily for use in the off-season.

Thyme’s oil, thymol, is believed to have many therapeutic applications and is widely used as an antiseptic and disinfectant among many other uses.
