Cooking With Fresh Thyme

Fresh thyme can be added to a recipe whole with the stem, or the leaves can be removed from the stem and then sprinkled into a dish. If a recipe calls for a "sprig" of thyme, the leaves and stem should be kept intact. When adding a whole sprig of thyme to soups, stews, or other recipes, the leaves usually fall off during cooking and the woody stem can be removed prior to serving.

If a recipe calls for "fresh thyme," the leaves need to be pulled off of the stem. To remove the leaves from a sprig of fresh thyme, simply hold the sprig at the top with one hand, pinch the sprig at the top with the other hand, and then slide those fingers down the stem, which will pull off the leaves as you go. The leaves will detach easily. Fresh thyme leaves are so small that they usually require no chopping. The exception to stripping the leaves from the stem is when the stem is young and flexible and it may be too difficult to remove the leaves. In this case, it is perfectly fine to chop the entire sprig and add it to the recipe.

Unlike many other types of fresh herbs, fresh thyme can be added early on in the recipe. The herb withstands and benefits from long cooking times, and will slowly infuse its flavor into the dish.
