Bay Leaves come from the Bay Tree which can grow up to 33 feet tall in some climates. The leaves are typically 2-4 inches long, and oblong in shape. Younger leaves are lighter in color, while older more mature leaves have a deeper green and tend to be a little leathery. These older leaves have a better aroma and flavor as compared to the young leaves.
The Bay tree is native to Asia Minor and is mainly cultivated in the Mediterranean. Some of the highest quality Bay Leaves comes from Turkey, which is where our stock is imported. Surprisingly, dry Bay leaves are much better than fresh leaves as the drying process removes bitterness and leaves the rich volatile oils which are later easily infused into a number of dishes while cooking.
Bay leaves add wonderful flavor and aroma to soups, stews, sauces, and slow-cooked dishes. Ground bay leaves impart this wonderful flavor without the inconvenience of removing the whole leaves.
