It is among the world s oldest culinary herbs. Our French Select version has a softer leaf and sweeter flavor than our standard Mediterranean one. Also available in Mediterranean Thyme or Lemon Thyme.

Beautiful! Perfect kit!

I bought these for my daughter when she moved into her new apartment. She loves the spices and is always looking for new ways to use them.

Chili Lime Shrimp

Made this as an appetizer but will use it for kebobs on the grill Memorial Day - so easy and so delicious with just the right amount of "heat" - . I think it would be beautiful with black pasta and a sprinkle of fresh green herbs of your choice - basil, parsley, cilantro!

Love all your products and so did the recipients of the gift during the holidays.
