Smell: These are the leaves of the bay laurel tree, which is grown in warm climates and has been used in Greece and Rome as a symbol of honor. Bay leaves are used in several of the world’s cuisines and are actually stronger in their dried form--just always remember to remove them from a dish before serving, as the leaf’s edge can be a rather sharp thing to swallow.
Flavors: Bay leaves are herbal in aroma, with slight fennel and oregano tones.
Use: Use to flavor soups, stews and broths. Put a few in chicken stock or tomato sauce to add a subtle herbaceous note. Alternatively, place a few in a jar of sugar to create an enchantingly different type of flavored sugar to use on top of pastries, or anywhere you like.
