Expert Tips

Thyme is a branchy herb with tiny, high aromatic leaves that complement poultry and dried bean dishes. The leaves must be stripped from the fibrous stalks before use.

Among the most assertive of herbs, rosemary comes from an evergreen plant whose leaves resemble pine needles. Strip them from the woody stems before use. Rosemary is best used with a judicious hand, since some people find it overpowering. In Italy, it's a traditional seasoning for roasted pork with garlic.

These three-herb scones make a fine side dish for a meal of beef-vegetable soup or roasted pork.
