Our all-natural processing.
The robust earthiness in its flavor is both penetrating and delightful, lending deeply aromatic and complex flavors that work to beautifully boost the natural flavors of nearly any savory dish.
Like all strong flavored herbs, thyme has been observed as a protector by practitioners in ancient times.
The herb grew, and still grows, in the wild and could easily be found by all.
Burning the herb and inhaling the scent was associated with strength, courage, and bravery. 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 some of these uses may have faded, but the beloved flavor and fragrance of the spice have allowed it to travel the world and earn its place in the current global fusion cuisine.
