Organic Bay Leaf - 2 oz French Jar - 5444
- ORGANIC BAY LEAVES WHOLE: One of the most popular cooking spices, the aromatic organic bay leaf is not eaten, but used to infuse dishes with a subtle depth. It is perfect in slow-cooked dishes like soups, stews and braises. Leave the bay leaf whole during cooking and remove before eating.
- BEEF STEW SEASONING: With a delicate, woodsy taste, bay leaf enlivens and balances the flavors in stocks and sauces. Add them to meaty French casseroles, Mediterranean couscous, or savory Italian risotto. It is also lovely when infused into sweet custards and ice creams.
- ORGANIC INGREDIENTS: Pure and simple, these 100% USDA certified organic bay leaves for cooking are packaged in an attractive, reusable French Jar. Rich in antioxidants, vitamin A, minerals and dietary fibers, bay leaves have long been used in traditional folk medicine as an anti-inflammatory.
- PREMIUM QUALITY: Packed in our SQF-certified facility here in the USA, these high-quality organic bay leaves are pesticide-free, non-GMO, kosher, and gluten-free. Early scientific research now suggests bay leaf helps lower blood sugar and benefits those with cardiovascular diseases.
Chef Fiona uses Organic Hand Select Bay Leaf in Coq au Vin, Chicken Noodle Soup and Slow-Cooked Spicy Citrus Mojo Pork. Add leaves at the beginning of cooking as they will release more flavor into your dish the longer they simmer. For this reason, bay leaves are perfectly paired with slow-cooked dishes such as pot roast, seafood stews, hearty chili, savory vegetable soups and beans cooked from dry.
No time for slow cooking? Add a bay leaf to your water for mashed potatoes or rice. Top a baking sheet of fresh asparagus or carrots with a couple bay leaves before roasting them. Toss a bay leaf into your bechamel sauce for moussaka, gratins or lasagna. Check out traditional Caribbean, French and Greek recipes for more inspiration. Remember, fresh bay leaves have a very strong methanol taste that can overpower the other flavors in a dish. Therefore, dried bay leaves are preferred in most recipes. Whole bay leaves, though edible, are not digestible, so remove them before enjoying your delicious creations.
