Thyme is one of the oldest and most popular herbs and is used in almost every cuisine. It is greenish gray in color with tiny leaves. It is a powerfully aromatic herb, with a strong, slightly minty, bitter flavor. We purchase thyme from Spain. It is harvested from March to September. In this season, it produces a higher volatile oil content and is more attractive than the winter harvest.Thyme is one of the essential herbs in Bouquet Garni and is used for flavoring soups, stews and stuffings.
