Per Unit. This popular herb grows in Europe, primarily the Mediterranean, and is a member of the mint family. It is very aromatic, and it has small, grey-green leaves and a sweetly earthy flavour. There are many different varieties, but the most readily available in the UK are the common or ‘garden’ thyme and lemon thyme, which has slightly larger leaves and a flavour overlaid with a lemony tang. Both types work well with Mediterranean vegetables, eggs, pork, lamb, fish and game. It’s quite hardy, so that it can withstand long cooking times.
