Thyme question :)

1121 Views 3 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  chrose
A chicken recipe I will be making tonight calls for 10 sprigs of fresh thyme. Unfortunatly I Do not have any. I do have dried and am wondering how much would this equate too spoon wise.

Thank you kindly :)

cchui is right that the standard formula for substituting dried:fresh herbs is generally 1:3.

I find dried thyme, however, to be more overpowering in its dried form than most other herbs and I usually cut back even more when using it. As this is a chicken recipe rather than something with the more robust flavor of, say, beef, I'd err on the side of caution.

I wonder if anyone has an explanation why dried thyme seems to be so much stronger in that form than other herbs.
