Thyme

FThymerom the Greek thymos, thymari which means sacrifice or to sacrifice.The ancient Greeks used it in their baths and burnt it as incense in their temples, believing it was a source of courage.Thyme is sold both fresh and dried.

The fresh form is more flavourful, but also less convenient; storage life is rarely more than a week.

While summer-seasonal, fresh greenhouse thyme is often available all year round.Depending on how it is used in a dish, the whole sprig may be used (e.g. in a bouquet garni), or the leaves removed and the stems discarded.

 Usually when a recipe specifies "bunch" or "sprig", it means the whole form; when it specifies spoons it means the leaves.

It is perfectly acceptable to substitute dried for whole thyme.Thyme retains its flavour on drying better than many other herbs.

Substitution is often more complicated than that because recipes can specify sprigs, and sprigs can vary in yield of leaves.
