FAQs about thyme

Thyme responds well to being stored, as long as you follow a couple of important principles. Most important is to keep thyme wrapped in a damp paper towel while you are waiting to add it to a recipe. If your cooking schedule has a longer time horizon, the best conditions are to keep the paper towel inside a plastic bag in the refrigerator.  Under these conditions, full sprigs of fresh thyme will generally keep for about two weeks.

Thyme leaves will keep in a plastic container for about three days. Once the leaves start to turn brown, it's time to throw them away and start with fresher leaves.  Cooking experts say that extra thyme leaves can also be stored. They recommend covering them with water in the individual bins of an ice cube tray and sliding them into the freezer. They can be defrosted in the future for cooking. Dried thyme can be stored and saved in a cool, dark place for up to three years.
