How Much Dried Thyme Equals Fresh Thyme?

The ratio of dried to fresh thyme is one-third. In other words, you only need to use one-third as much dried thyme when a recipe calls for fresh thyme. As an illustration, 1/3 teaspoon of dried thyme is equivalent to 1 teaspoon of fresh thyme.

Less dried herb is needed when cooking since dried herbs have a considerably higher flavour concentration than comparable fresh herbs. While dried herbs have a considerably longer shelf life, fresh herbs typically have a superior flavour and aroma. Fresh thyme can be kept for up to seven days and dried thyme can be kept for up to six months.
