Pure Mediterranean Taste!

Native to the Mediterranean area, Thyme is a very popular herb in Greece. Its taste and aroma are representatives of Greek and Cretan cuisines!

Thyme is a slender shrub with a height of 10-30 cm. Its branches are small and woody, while its leaves are 4-10 mm long. Its flowers are pink or lilac.

Its name, Thymos, (thyme in Greek) derives from the ancient Greek word “thyo”, meaning sacrifice. It was greatly recognized in Ancient Greeks and healers used the herb to stimulate brain function, along with honey and vinegar. Both the Romans and Greeks used it in their baths to gain energy and courage and Alexander the Great used it during his campaigns as lice-killing.

Properties that go beyond its amazing taste!

Except for being a sign of courage, Thyme was known for its aphrodisiac properties. In the 16th century, women offered their loved ones soups with thyme and beer as erotic arousal, while at the same time it was used to treat melancholy by filling the patient’s pillows with crushed thyme leaves.

While there are numerous remedies with Thyme, coming from most Mediterranean civilizations, its therapeutic effects are not just another fraud. In the modern era, Thyme is used by the pharmaceutical industry on numerous occasions, mainly because of its concentrations of thymol and carvacrol, thymol, and its antibacterial and antiseptic properties. Also, it has a lot of vitamin K, manganese, calcium, and iron.

Thyme is an amazing herb, with all its health benefits, it is flavoring Greek cuisine since antiquity. It goes well with fish and meat and it’s ideal for delicious and fragrant marinades! Although it can be used as a substitute for oregano in various dishes, its best use is to complement it.

Uses in Cooking

Dried thyme is a seasoning we can use without really thinking about it. In Greek cuisine, we often use it with almost every meal we are cooking.

The reason we use it so often is the fact that Thyme gives dishes a flavor that’s not easy to achieve with any other herb and it goes well with almost everything.

Here some tips for how to use dried thyme:

  • When overcooked it may lose its flavor.
  • Add it just a few minutes before your meal is ready, or right after you close the heat. The results? Your meal will smell like heaven! Try on your next stew, soup, or pasta sauce.
  • Try adding some dried leaves to your salad!
  • When you are baking your bread, try to put some dried thyme leaves in the flower.
  • It goes well with chicken and poultry, red meat, and fish.
  • Last tip! If you want to substitute fresh thyme with dried, keep in mind that you need to use 1/3 (one-third) of the recommended volume of fresh thyme. The reason is that dried thyme has a much stronger flavor than fresh.
