TIP: When removing the thyme leaves from the stalks, don’t wash the thyme first! Removing the leaves dry is so much easier. When they are dry, you can pinch the bottom of the stalk and run your fingers up the stock to get the leaves off. Wash them afterwards. Also, I used to take tons of time to make sure I didn’t get any of the stalks into the thyme I was going to use for my recipe. As you can see from the photo below, I’ve relaxed that policy – with no noticeable impact on flavor!

  3. Stir mushroom and onions together and add thyme. Cook, covered, for another 10 minutes. Notice that substantial amounts of moisture will come out of the mushrooms and they will lose about half of their size.
