USA / Thymus vulgaris
Thyme is one of the most widely distributed herbs, being used throughout Europe and the Middle East, even all the way to Cajun country. One of the oldest herbal cultivars, thyme has found its way to every corner of the global spice pantry. The intense herbaceous and woodsy aroma has a universal ability to please the palate, and pairs best with foods that stand up well to that intensity- from game meats and root vegetables to beef and mushrooms or sausage gumbo!
