Thyme adds an intense flavour to recipes, and therefore, should be added sparingly. In order to keep its fragrance and flavour intact, Thyme is generally added at the last moment in the cooking recipes. This is because, prolonged cooking results in evaporation of its essential oils.
Fresh thyme is a better choice (compared to dried) since it is superior in nutrients and rich in flavor. The leaves of fresh thyme should feature light green, and free from any dark spots or yellowing. Fresh thyme should be stored in the refrigerator wrapped in a slightly dampen paper towel. Dried thyme can be kept in a tightly sealed glass container and stored in a cool, dark, and dry place, where it will keep fresh for up to six months.
