How do you use the thyme from your garden? Share a favorite recipe or a quick tip.

BBQ Sauce

I wrap a bundle in bacon and then render the fat. This becomes a great smokey base to Bbq sauce.
—Guest Brett

Thyme Simple Syrup

I infuse thyme into simple syrup, to use in teas or bourbon drinks!

Need to Plant More!

I use so much thyme on my fresh salmon that my plants are looking very sad, so I'm off to buy more plants today!
—Guest BobbyT

For the bees!

My bees love it as much as I do. It is antibacterial and discourages varroa and tracheal mites. One of my top recommended herbs for honeybees.

Scenting Clothes

A sprig of thyme in laundry & underwear storage units is lovely.

How I use Thyme the most

I make blooming onions and put it in the center cut out. I also use it in grilled potatoes packets and roasted potatoes. Great in all these recipes

Thyme for Pasta

Any Pasta dish is improved with thyme. I also add fresh Thyme to my potato salad.
—Guest Pop for Pasta

In Tomato Soup

I use so much fresh thyme in our homemade creamy tomato soup that it should be homemade creamy thyme soup. The more thyme the more explosive the tomato flavor, believe it or not! Yum!
—Guest Vanessa

Vegetables

Thyme is delicious with just about every vegetable.

Versatile

I like it with cauliflower, in cheese sauce and in quiche.

Jelllies

Thyme and apple jelly. Great with roast pork also with roast chicken. We also "do" a sage jelly & use it in a similar manner.
—Guest C.E.Ribbons

Delicious Thyme!

Lemon Thyme gives roast chicken the most wonderful flavour! Orange-Scented Thyme is delicious with fish, such as a tasty Mackerel or Herring.

As a Rub

My husband makes a rub with dried lemon thyme for steaks. Then he cooks it in his Treager grill. It is absolutely the best!!
—Guest Lori

YUMMY

to any tomato based dish!!!!!! Italian etc... To lasagne, pasta, tortellini, ravioli, etc...
—Guest freddo

its so healthy!!!

a mere tablespoon of dried thyme provides 5 mg of Iron...how awesome is that? (FYI, the USRDA is 18 mg) pair it with vitamin C and triple your body's ability to absorb it.
