To use thyme in cooking, you need to follow these steps:
- Rinse the fresh or dried thyme under cold water and pat it dry with a paper towel.
- Strip the leaves from the stems by running your fingers along them. You can also chop the stems if they are tender.
- Measure the amount of thyme you need for your recipe. Usually, one teaspoon of dried thyme is equivalent to one tablespoon of fresh thyme.
- Add the thyme to your dish according to the recipe instructions. You can also sprinkle some thyme over salads, soups, or roasted vegetables for extra flavor.
