The ground version imparts the same earthiness and warmth in cooking, just note to use about one third to half of the amount quantified in a recipe compared to the whole version. This herb, native to the Mediterranean, has had its popularity grow to international stardom with the cuisines it belongs to. No question in a cook‰۪s mind that without thyme French and Mediterranean dishes wouldn‰۪t be the same in taste and fragrance.
Like all strong flavored herbs, thyme has been observed as a protector by practitioners in ancient times. The herb grows and grew in the wild and could easily be found by all, burning the herb and inhaling the scent was associated with strength, courage, and bravery‰ÛÓwhich may explain the subsequent popular culinary use of the herb, as cooking with and eating the herb was obviously more favorable to many than just inhaling the scent. Frequently combined with rosemary and sage, some protection against the smell of less fresh food was also provided before refrigeration existed. Today these uses have faded, but the beloved flavor and fragrance of the spice has allowed it to travel the world and earn its place in the current global fusion cuisine.
People for centuries have used different parts of the thyme plant to cure various common health problems. The flowers, leaves, and oil were (and still are) used as a remedy to cure or bring relief to bed-wetting, arthritis, stomach aches, sore throats and bronchitis. The thymol found in thyme is beneficial for a variety of medical issues people may experience, in particular it‰۪s powerful antibacterial aspects. The herb is also suggested to help with acne treatment, hypertension, and stimulating the whole metabolism system,
