Thyme – Culinary & Medicinal

GRASONVILLE, MDThursday morning – How much thyme do you have in your life? Ah yes, a play on words that I just couldn’t resist! Thyme is a wonderful plant to have in your garden. It is easy to grow and is a nice low border plant that tolerates drought conditions well. Thyme, of course, is great for cooking. It adds flavor to many recipes and helps you digest your food better by stimulating production of gastric juices while it relaxes gastrointestinal muscles and relieves mild cramps and gas. Thyme is great to flavor meats, soups, stews, lamb, poultry, tomatoes, eggs and in stuffing. Thyme is always more flavorful when used fresh. Thyme is a powerful germicide; it is anti-viral, anti-oxidant, anti-fungal, anti-spasmodic for respiratory issues, astringent and good for bronchitis, whooping cough, laryngitis and asthma. Thyme also helps relieve insect bites, bee stings, joint paint and helps heal athlete’s foot. You can’t ask much more from an herb! >>Candace
