Growing Thyme- Benefits and Instructions
Benefits of Growing Thyme
Soil Retention- The roots have a deep, fibrous growth habit that is perfect for growing on erosion-prone slopes.
- Medicinal - Thyme is an antiviral herb and is especially helpful with the common cold, coughs and bronchial infections.
- Nutritional Profile - A good source of iron, phosphorus, magnesium and potassium.
Use in: Most savoury dishes especially braised meats and roasted vegetables. Also used extensively in teas and cocktails.
Harvest the leaves before the fragrant blossoms open in midsummer.
To keep thyme tasting fresh, roll it in a damp paper towel and place it in a resealable plastic bag and store in the refrigerator. Thyme is also hardy enough to withstand being stored in the freezer without any effect on taste or texture. Thyme is also on of the best herbs for drying as it retains much of its flavour.
