Thyme has tiny delicate long grayish-green leaves. Used as a condiment the thyme leaves are dried, chopped or ground with a subtle, dry aroma and slightly minty flavor.

The thyme leaves are included in the French combination called bouquet garni.

Best used in seasoning blends for poultry, stuffings, fish sauces, chowders and soups as well as beans, egg and vegetable dishes.

An excellent source of iron and maganese and a good source of calcium and fiber.
