Common items included in a sachet d’épices are:

  • dried thyme
  • parsley stems
  • bay leaf
  • whole peppercorns
  • whole cloves

These ingredients are tied inside a piece of cheesecloth, which is then suspended in the simmering stock at the end of a length of cooking twine, so that it can be easily retrieved.
