Friday Foodie Fix- Secret Intredient is Thyme

Friday Foodie Fix- Secret Intredient is Thyme

Friday Foodie Fix

This week’s secret ingredient for Friday Foodie Fix is thyme.  We could all use a little more thyme in our lives.  Thyme is a basic herb that is used in a lot of French cooking.  It is also an integral part of Bouquet Garni.  Thyme is part of the mint family and is a perennial meaning once you plant it, it will come back each year.  I love that.  It’s a very easy herb to grow.  You can use thyme when cooking vegetables, meats, poultry and fish dishes, soups and cream sauces.  It is usually easy to find both fresh and in a jar at the supermarket.  Now here is something to keep in mind.  You should store your herbs in a cool dark place for no more than 6 months.

With this being such a wonderful ingredient I can’t wait to see all the dishes you share today.

    I love thyme! I made the greatest Thanksgiving turkey w/ a hazelnut butter (w/ lots of thyme) that was so amazing. I never blogged about it…maybe I'll do that today to share w/ you 🙂

    I enjoy cooking with thyme and grow a ton of it in my garden (4 different varieties!). I use it most often in soups

    Yum, thyme is one of my favorite herbs and I don't use it nearly enough. Looking forward to some new ideas here. Thanks for hosting.

    OK, I guess I suck at the Mr. Linky. I forgot to put in the title of my post. It's Italian Chicken Stew. It's an old post but a very good recipe. I have a new one I made with thyme, but I don't have it written up, yet.

    This my first time with Friday Foodie Fix. What fun. Gotta check out the other recipes. 🙂

    Wow – I am so excited my recipe has the secret ingredient this week. I wish I'd checked yesterday but better late than never!

    Okay, here a little late, but I've linked up what I have for thyme. Thyme and poultry seasoning (which is mostly thyme) are critical in some recipes. BTW, I knew you'd say the thing about needing more "thyme." LOL … yes, we do! 🙂

    Mine is a late summer dish using fresh thyme, but tomatoes and potatoes seem like good fall transition ingredients to me!
