Thyme

Bot.: Thymus vulgaris

Thyme or Common Thyme is a perennial shrub in the family Lamiaceae. It is about 20-40 cm tall, likes warm, dry places and grows mainly in southern Europe.

The name 'thyme' comes from the Greek ('Thymus' = smell). Like rosemary, thyme keeps his typical flavor after drying. The characteristic flavor of its essential oil is especially due to thymol, cymene and linalool.

Thyme is mainly used in meat and poultry dishes, sauces and sausages such as liverwurst and black pudding (along with marjoram).
