I love to use fresh herbs when I’m cooking. Our little herb bed did pretty good this year and I used my fair share of thyme, rosemary, parsley, oregano, chives, and cilantro.
But there are also times when I prefer dried herbs. Specifically I like dried thyme (in popcorn) and dried oregano (in sauces).
I clipped what was left and prepared it for drying. I rinsed and spun dry the herbs and then I tied small bundles together using some butcher’s string.
Have you ever classed up your popcorn with a little dried thyme? If not, you really should. It’s delicious. You should also make your popcorn on the stove. That microwave stuff is ok in a pinch but it pales in comparison to real popcorn. Pop your corn and then add a little melted butter, a liberal sprinkle of salt, and a little dried thyme, crushed a bit between your fingertips. Delicious!
