Does thyme taste like dirt to anyone else?
I made a beef stew last night that was pretty good, but it had this really earthy, almost dirt taste to me, and I know it was the thyme that did that. Is it supposed to taste like that? I don't use it often but when I do, I notice that taste. Am I just weird? Or do other people feel like it kind of tastes like dirt as well? I know some people who think cilantro tastes like soap, which I don't, so I can see where different people would have different opinions about this. I just want to know that I'm not crazy.
