OVERVIEW:

Lemon thyme is an aromatic herb in the mint family and it looks and grows like English thyme, but that is where the similarities cease. It has a soft herbal thyme flavor without the bitterness, along with a subtle essence of lemon and it can be used in any recipe calling for lemon juice, lemon zest, or lemon flavoring. It is a great replacement for English thyme when you desire citrus undertones in your dish. Lemon thyme can be excellent in dishes including poultry, fish, salads, vegetables, soups, and pasta.

 

Lemon thyme contains potent antioxidants and is known for its antibacterial and antifungal properties. It is packed with vitamin C and is also a good source of vitamin A, copper, fiber, iron, and manganese. Lemon thyme's powerhouse of nutrients supports the immune, digestive, and respiratory systems to name a few. It even has positive mood-boosting effects.
