Yeah, that's basically how most kitchens do it as well. This job I always assign to the dishwasher, and she's very good at it as well as most other prep jobs and I consider myself lucky. At home it depends how the thyme is going to be used, sometimes it's not necessary to have perfectly intact thyme leaves.That technique for me (which is what I use) only ever results it getting about half, maybe 2/3rds of the leaves off, though, and many of those leaves will still be attached to the little twiggy bit they're on, and the twig usually snaps at the very top, leaving those leaves to be picked.
I'm looking for the method that gets me 100% of the leaves with 0% of any stem or twig, and as of now, the only one I've found is picking the leaves off individually.
