Thyme has a strong, pungent, Mediterranean flavour, which makes it an ideal herb for flavouring meat and/or tomato-based dishes. Because of its potency, it is not recommended to use thyme with fish, as it will quickly overpower. Even with strongly-flavoured meat, use thyme in moderation to avoid overwhelming the dish.
This living herb can be stored in the fridge (preferably not in the back - where its a bit too chilly). If you'd like to watch them grow like a living house plant keep them on the windowsill to make sure they get lots of sun and water regularly when the soil is dry.
