Organic Whole Bay Leaves (Laurus nobilis) 0.25 ounces
Country of Origin: Turkey
Dried bay leaves can be used whole or crumbled into cooking. They are an important ingredient in many French, Moroccan, and Turkish dishes as well as joining with parsley and thyme to become the blend Bouquet Garni. This subtle yet flavorful blend enhances soups, stews, and sauces. Bay leaves can also be steeped as a tea.
Besides their culinary uses, bay leaves have an interesting mythical history dating back to the Greeks and Romans where they not only protected people from thunderstorms and evil spirits but also helped the priestesses at the Temple of Delphi with divining the future.
Dried herbs are purchased from reputable wholesale companies. Organic herbs are labeled as such. I have personally bagged and weighed the herbs that I sell packaged. Many of the herbs that I sell have medicinal as well as culinary properties. Please research for yourself and consult your family doctor before using unfamiliar herbs.
