Are there any secrets to efficiently removing thyme leaves? It's great I'd there is a long single branch, but many thymes they fork into many smaller branches and its laborious to harvest.

Is this one of those things that is just a labor of love or is there a better way?

If you grow your own and prune it properly, can you avoid the smaller branches?

i usually just throw in the whole twig. or i take a fork and run the twig trough it to get the leaves off.

Motherfuck, just did like 16 stalks of this for my stew.

Top few leaves snaps off easy, just use that.

The rest of the stalk you can grab at the non-root end and just pull with thumb and forefinger to remove most of them.

My thyme is growing like a motherfucker, in spite of the cold weather. Nothing can stop this shit. It's nearly overtaken the rosemary I planted in the same pot; the sage never stood a chance. It's spilling over the edges and cascading down to the porch. I don't even know what to do with all this fucking thyme.
>>
pull off the smaller branches then do everything individually like you would with rosemary

best i can do is hold a single woody branch at the top and draw my closed fingers down the stem to the base to pull off the leaves (using your nails if poss)

you cant avoid pulling off the weaker side stems but but obviously avoid the woody stuff

If you aren't in a hurry or have a lot to do, stick it in the freezer for a bit. Once it starts to stiffen you can literally just shake all the leaves off.
