Make time for Thyme

thyme plant babies
These thyme plants are from last year, however they are meant to encourage you to grow your own. The library program in Sandpoint, Idaho was great, and I got to meet some truly wonderful people. I love seeing folks get excited about herbs, and using them in new and old ways.
Here is a recipe from the class. It’s very simple.
Ginger-Thyme Punch
1 quart white grape juice
1 pint thyme tea* (unsweetened)
1 12-ounce bottle ginger ale
1/2 cup fresh strawberries, sliced according to size
Fill a large serving bowl with ice, add all the ingredients, stir and serve.
*To make thyme tea: steep 1 teaspoon dried thyme herb in 1 pint (2 cups) boiling water for 5-10 minutes, according to desired strength.
I’m sure you will find many occasions, or no occasion at all, to enjoy this refreshing drink. It’s a nice family alternative to alcoholic punches as well, although a little brandy would be a nice addition if desired.

Stay in touch, I love hearing from you!
