If he's feeling really groovy, and a bit more earthy, we'll positively suggest this festive concoction by Quinn Stephenson of Coyote Cafe, The Den and Geronimo.

Thyme Shopping Tip

Keep both fresh herbs and dried herbs on hand. Dry herbs will last a long time, while fresh herbs have a short shelf-life.

Thyme Cooking Tip

If you want the flavor of herbs in your food without the actual pieces, wrap them in cheese cloth and cook; discard before eating.
