Ground Thyme (ounce)
Pronounced “time”; Thyme is also known as common thyme or garden thyme and is from the species Thymus vulgarisandis which is one of over 350 species in the Lamiaceae (mint) family.
Thyme is recognized for its strong, fresh, lemony flavor. The French use it liberally in sauces, soups, stews, vinegar and the signature blends Herbs de Provence and Bouquet Garnis. In France it is also used to pair with fish, meat and poultry dishes. In this country it plays a starring role in Cajun and Creole cooking as it adds flavor to blackened meat and fish dishes, and in Caribbean cuisine it's used in Jamaican Jerk Seasoning. In the Middle East, it is a key ingredient in the popular blend Za’atar.
Thyme pairs well with allspice, chili powder, garlic, nutmeg, oregano and paprika. Thyme is especially good when used with egg and cheese dishes (like quiche, frittatas, and omelets), cabbage, chicken, lamb, potatoes, sauces, soups, stews, stocks, tomatoes, leeks and legumes.
This top-quality ground thyme is cultivated in Morocco.
