This strongly aromatic herb is much cultivated in Eastern and Southern Europe and Northern Africa, but also in the US. Thyme is an important spice of European cuisines, especially in South Europe. It is especially typical for France, where fresh branches of thyme, tied up into bundles together with other fresh herbs, are added to soups, sauces and stews, being removed before serving.
