Lime Thyme

No I'm not trying to be cute and rhyme my words, I'm talking about my new favorite herb. We picked up a starter plant at the Hillcrest Farmers Market a few weeks ago, so far, it is doing great.

We have already used it in several dishes. So far, just in small amounts, a pasta dish, a couple of marinades, some Aztec rice, and it was terrific in my potato salad. Here are a few other great recipes:

Lime Thyme Potatoes
Lime Thyme Mushroom Tapas
Lime Thyme Dressing/Marinade

Fresh Lime Thyme has a very subtle citrus taste but it's not overwhelming. I plan to use it often and try it in many dishes, I'm thinking anything I might put cilantro in should be considered, so far that is working for me!

Our plant is still young, but seems to be thriving in it's little pot. This weekend we plan to expand our garden with some tomatoes, herbs and more peppers.....I just love Spring!!!!

What are you growing this Spring?


  1. I love gardaning and ur plant is looks so quate like baby, nice post.

  2. I would never have thought to put Lime and Thyme together! I'll definitely be experimenting with these flavors! (I also love that it rhymes!)

  3. I've always grown lemon thyme, but I've never even seen lime thyme. I'll have to look for it at the nurseries this year. It sounds like a good addition to the herb garden.

  4. OMG! I'm embarrassed to say, but I've never heard of lime thyme. I bet that is deeeelicious. There's a new Farmers Market in Golden Hill on Saturdays, in case you're interested! Hope all is well. :)

  5. I've never heard of lime thyme. What does it taste like? Cilantro? Thyme?

  6. I think that I now need to plant this lime thyme. Thank you for sharing!!
