Thyme (pronounced "time") is used in a number of cuisines, including Mediterranean, African, Latin & Central American, Caribbean, American, and European. Generally, it will have a sharp, almost minty flavor. It is earthy with floral hints, a little bit sweet, and a little bit peppery. Thyme is typically used in savory dishes like roasted meat, vegetables, or fish. It can also be used to add flavor to soups, marinades, stews, and chowders.
