Herb of the Week

Thyme has been used since ancient times and has long been an emblem of courage and bravery. Egyptians used thyme for embalming. Greeks used it as incense and in their baths.

Thyme is known for being a very good antiseptic and is still used in Listerine mouthwash.Thyme is also used for coughs and was known as a cure for whooping cough.

In the kitchen thyme has many uses. It is good in soups and stews. It tastes wonderful with fish, lamb and other meats.My favorite use is in herb butters and salad dressing.

Thyme is a hardy perennial that loves to grow near lavender. It is a beautiful addition to any herb garden.

This lovely herb painting "Thyme" would make a great addition to your kitchen decor. It may provide just the inspiration and courage you need for your cooking.
