A few days ago I wrote that I'd love to make our lemon thyme into something.
A reader suggested mixing it with equal parts sugar and oil.
So here's my attempt at it.
Hopefully the photos are self explanatory.
The blender idea didn't work. I put 1 teaspoon olive oil and the herbs in...not enough stuff to do any good.
So, I chopped them as fine as I could and mixed it all by hand, or finger.
The mixture of 1 teaspoon olive oil and 1 teaspoon sugar and herbs was nice. It made my hands nice and soft. Though after my shower the smell of olive oil was stronger than the herby smell. So I added some lemon zest. Which really didn't make that much difference.
I got a wild hair and tried the oil/sugar with coffee grounds (very fine).
That was nice too. The olive oil smell lasted longer than the coffee.
I tried the herb mixture again that night and the sugar had dissolved leaving my hands very sticky.
Back to the drawing board.
