Additional Information:
Thyme is an aromatic perennial evergreen herb with culinary, medicinal, and ornamental uses. The most common variety is Thymus vulgaris. Thyme is the genus Thymus of the mint family and a relative of the oregano genus Origanum.

No kitchen should be without the heady, aromatic flavour of thyme. There are many different varieties, both cultivated and wild, with flavours of mint, caraway, lemon, and stronger varieties that taste more akin to oregano.

The lemon thyme and common thyme are the most common forms of thyme that are used in cooking. In contrast, thyme is also used for medicinal purposes with the most common types used being Spanish thyme, common thyme, as well as creeping thyme. All of these types are indigenous to Western Asia and Europe although they are cultivated throughout the world.

The dried or fresh leaves of the thyme plant along with the flowers can be used in stews, soups, sautéed or baked vegetables, custards, and casseroles. The herb gives the food a tangy and warm flavour, similar to camphor, and is able to retain its strong flavour even after cooking. It can also be used within marinades as well as stuffing.

Storage Advice:
“How long do dried herbs last?”
Depends on both the type of herb and the conditions under which they are stored. Correctly dried and stored herbs do not actually spoil. But over time, they will lose their potency, aroma and flavour.

As a general rule, whole dried herbs (not been ground) will last much longer than ground and can last for 1 to 3 years. It is also never a bad idea to freeze any spare herbs, try to remove as much air as possible and make sure it is kept sealed in the freezer to avoid moisture.

Here are some tips for maximising the shelf life of your herbs:

  • Store in an airtight container.
  • Store in a cool, dark cupboard.
  • Store away from direct heat or sunlight.
  • Keep lid tightly closed when not in use.
