History: Bay leaves have been used to flavor dishes since the time of the Ancient Greeks. They also became popular in French cooking and across the Middle East.
Farming and harvesting: When the organic bay leave plant grows, the more mature leaves at the bottom keep growing, so they are typically larger than the younger ones up top. Some farmers will cut the bottom ones first and wait until the newer leaves grow to a more desirable size for a later clipping.
Culinary Applications: Our bulk organic bay leaves are commonly used in stews, soups, meat dishes, seafood, vegetable dishes, and sauces.
