Featured Ingredient:  German Thyme

Highly aromatic, with a slightly minty, herbaceous flavor, German thyme enhances meat dishes, eggs, cheeses, soups, and sauces, and is a primary component of both Bouquet Garni and Herbes de Provence. Use it to elevate the flavor of good ole’ beef stew, too! This tiny-leaved thyme is among the most aromatic, more so than larger-leafed varieties. You may also hear it called winter thyme, because it is one of the most cold-hardy of all the thymes. Thyme is an easy herb to grow, and does very well in containers, as it needs well-drained soil. With such versatility, learn how to grow your own thyme and always have it on hand.
