About the Thyme 'Family': Thyme is a member of the Lamiaceae family. They are very useful herbs with many culinary uses as well as being used medicinally and looking great as well. The widespread of Thyme throughout Europe is thought to be due to the Romans who used the scent to purify buildings and flavour cheeses and liqueurs. Thyme can be used both fresh or dried with fresh leaves able to be frozen to retain their flavour and dried Thyme retaining its flavour much better than most herbs. Thyme is very commonly used as part of a Bouquet Garni and as a component of Herbes de Provence. The leaves are often used to add flavour to stews, salads, roasts, and fish dishes. The plants themselves usually have long, thin, and very fragrant leaves which are usually a rich green but can vary depending on the variety.
