Bay Leaf (Whole) - Kosher - ORGANIC - (0.14 oz. Bottle)
True bay laurel with earthy, balsamic flavor and aroma for enhancing soups, gravies, Mediterranean dishes and more.
Enjoy its sweet, balsamic scent and bitter/spicy bite in grain dishes, with beans and meats, French bouillabaisse and bouquet garni.
Laurus nobilis is the only botanical that the FDA recognizes as bay and approves for consumption as a spice.
An inferior herb (Umbellularia californica, also known as “California bay)” is sometimes offered as bay.
The longer, darker leaves of this plant make it appear more attractive than true bay, but “California bay” has a harsher, more camphor-like flavor.
Use in tomato sauces, gravies, soups and chilies.
Use to perk up pickles, meats, fish, and bean and grain dishes.
