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.
