Trick for Chopped Fresh Thyme in 5 Seconds
Chopping thyme takes time. You have to peel all the wee leaves from the stems.
But if you freeze the thyme in plastic bags (using this simple technique), the prep-work is super easy:
Any time you need chopped fresh thyme, pull the baggie from the freezer and give the stems a little noodling with your fingers.
The "chopped" thyme collects at the bottom of the bag. Of course, if you prefer a finer mince, give your herbs a few extra hacks with a kitchen knife.
This herb-noodling technique also works great with rosemary, marjoram, and mint.
