COOKING

SOURCING

Adding the Taurus Mountain Thyme to our seasonal lineup is actually the result of a happy accident — there was a mix-up, and our partners in Turkey shipped us this wonderful thyme varietal instead of our usual (and much-loved) Flowering Hyssop Thyme. As soon as we tasted it, we loved it and wanted to share it with yo

Taurus Mountain Thyme is grown in the area known as the Middle Taurus Mountains, between Mersin and Hatay, further west from where our Flowering Hyssop Thyme is grown. This thyme grows well in the high plateaus of the mountains, where the temperature gets very hot with little rainfall during the summer. The thyme seeds are typically planted between March and May and harvested in July and August.

Looking forward to using it.

Haven't used it yet, but smells bright and grassy, just the way I like it. A great herb to have on hand.

Thyme

Perhaps I’m lucky, having wild thyme growing all over the yard. So this Taurus Mtn thyme has some competition. But it is clean, like pine, excellent on roast chicken, or local trout, or in red sauce. Very nice.
