Product Description

The beautiful Bay Leaf savoury or sweet, comforting in custards, subtle in stews infuse your oils and pep up your pies the essential bouquet garni or 'baccalaureate' garlands of bay to honour the scholar.

Their slightly bittersweet, aromatic flavour makes these an essential ingredient of a good bouquet garni. Add to casserols, stews and sauces towards the end of cooking. Bay leaves are also used to add a little spice to milky puddings and custards.

These bay leaves really make you wonder why we ever used the dry ones. My Mum used the dry ones when I was growing up, because you couldn't get fresh ones back then. But nowadays we have no excuse! These give your dish a lovely flavour. I'd advise giving the leaf a light scrunch before use. Store in fridge and they'll last ages.

These really are excellent. I make them last by popping in the freezer, as most recipes only require 1 or 2 at the most.

Nice and Fresh, keep them in the fridge to last longer.

BE WARNED Not dried

These are nice, FRESH bay leaves, not dried leaves. They have a shelf life of about 10 days. I have no idea how I would use this quantity of bay leaves in that time. Normally they would last me over a year!
