May Spice Club: Thyme

Do you love to cook and want to try new flavors and recipes? Stop by the library and pick up this month’s Spice Club Kit, available on Monday, May 8.

In May, we are cooking with thyme, pairing this versatile herb with recipes featuring some of the season’s locally grown bounty: parsnips, salad greens, asparagus, and of course, rhubarb! In this month’s kit, we have added a small sample of thyme, information and history of the herb, and tips on making your own candied herbs.

Registration is not required, but supplies are limited. Spice Kits can be picked up at the Main Circulation Desk, on a first come, first served basis.

This program, generously supported by the Friends of the Greenfield Public Library, is free and intended for ages 13 and over.

Check here for Cloves, Cumin, Coriander, Black Pepper, Nutmeg, Cardamom, Garam Masala, Turmeric, Ginger, and others.

    Love the earthiness of thyme. Added it to a stir fry with garlic, salt, and pepper, peas. Also used butter and olive oil. Some of us add Parmesan cheese. It was delicious! Thank you for the thyme !
