Smelling and tasting like its namesake fruit, lemon thyme (Thymus citriodorus) adds a citrusy accent to chicken, fish, salad dressings and a variety of sauces. Whether used fresh or dried, the leaves are ideal for any dish that calls for both thyme and citrus flavors. Herbalists use lemon thyme to soothe sore throats and aid digestion, and the herb’s fragrance and calming properties make it a popular addition to handmade soaps and lotions. The herb can be grown indoors on a sunny windowsill or outdoors in a container for easy picking.
