Growing it: Thyme is very hardy and will grow under most conditions.
Using it: Thyme is great dried or fresh and can be used to add character to many poultry and meat dishes. To use it fresh, remove the leaves or use whole. The leaves are used for dishes where the thyme will be kept in the dish and not removed (stews, soups, sauces, etc.). Keep thyme on the sprig for baked chicken and whole roasts, where you can remove the entire sprig at the end of cooking.

Recipe to Try:
Chicken with Thyme and Lemon
