Tuscan food is known for its simple style yet complex flavours coming from a blend of regional herbs that have been used for cooking and healing since Roman times. A sun loving, low growing herb that forms a pink carpet in spring and has a herby flavour reminiscent of pizza herbs.
Taste of Tuscany herbs should be blended together in ratios as required for each dish. They all blend well with some basics of the modern and old kitchen like onions, tomatoes and garlic. The flavours are strong so best used with heavy or game style meats.
Thyme can be used at all stages of cooking. Early for strong flavour in soups, casseroles, etc, late for salads or as a garnish for any savoury dish. It is high in many vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that are all essential for optimum health.
Plant in dry exposed spots with full sun and good air movement. It needs little water and will die in heavy, wet soils.
Regular applications of Healthy earth NPK Liquid fertiliser in spring and autumn will keep the plant healthy and growing well.
