Kitchen Tips

Thyme’s flavor becomes less distinct when cooked. For maximum flavor use fresh or cook to diminish the flavor to suit your taste. North Shore Living Herbs® Thyme is young and tender, when using simply remove the amount you need from the roots ball, wash and pat dry, and mince finely with a sharp kitchen knife before adding to your recipe. When substituting fresh herbs in a recipe calling for dry, one part dry is equal to three parts North Shore Living Herbs®. Try one of our recipes or simply pair it with some of the ingredients suggested below:
