Fresh Thyme Flowers in Louisville

Thyme leaves add a distinct flavor to meats, vegetables, soups and salads – and so do the delicate white flowers that cover the plants each year!  The thyme flowers have a more subtle flavor than the leaves and are perfect as a finishing garnish on meat, fish, vegetables or salad. They’re wonderful sprinkled over a platter of hummus or across a bowl of soup. Knead some into soft goat cheese for a delicious spread. Add them to bread dough, muffin batter or cookies. Freeze a few flowers into an ice cube for a beautiful accent to your drinks. That’s just a few of the ways to use thyme flowers – you can pretty much use them in any dish you’d use the leaves in.

Your thyme flowers are sold in roughly 1/4 cup bunches (loosely packed). Due to their tiny size and delicacy, they are simply cut and placed in a brown paper bag. For best results, use them promptly. These freshy thyme flowers in Louisville won’t be around long, so order yours now.

Thyme flowers can be used to make flavored oils, salts and herb butters.

What to Do With Fresh Herbs 

Many people who purchase fresh herbs will use them for specific recipes or other cooking applications. In most cases, fresh herbs are added towards the end of the cooking process or sprinkled over the finished dish. Herbs can be steeped in warm (not HOT) water to make herbal teas or marinated in vinegar to flavor it. Here’s a few more ideas for using your herbs.

Use fresh thyme flowers to add the distinctive flavor of thyme to any dish. They make a beautiful, flavorful finish for meats, vegetables or salads.
