*Our Laurel Bay Leaves are now ground! Our jars hold more bay leaves than the larger containers did, plus you can use the ground leaves in more versatile ways than the whole leaves. Read on for examples!*
Our ground Laurel Bay Leaf is a pure expression of the savory, herbal flavor of the bay leaf. Sourced from the rocky Mediterranean coastline of Turkey, dried and ground into a powder, it's a versatile alternative to whole bay leaves.
Use sparingly (1/8th teaspoon is approximately equivalent to 1 whole leaf) in soups, stews and as a rub for roasted meats and veggies.

This stuff is amazing! I have long wanted to be able to get bay leaf as a powder but no one made it that I could find. Then I found Burlap and Barrel- now this is my go to for so many flavor combinations. And it's TRUE Bay not that horrid chemically California bay! Put this in rubs for all meats from poultry to lamb-you won't regret it-just be judicious and not heavy handed and you'll be fine!
Great experience. I'll be back!
I cook with bay leaf quite frequently and what I like about the powdered is I only need 1/8th of a tsp and I don’t have to fish out the leaves!
I haven’t tried this yet but they smell amazing! Thank you for the fresh herbs. They came quickly, well packaged and nice size bottles of spice.
I wanted to try this in a Cuban rice and beans recipe. I had always omitted the laurel before. When the spice arrived it didn’t smell like much but I still used it in the recipe. The ground laurel made entire pot of rice and beans taste bitter, and we threw it out. I don’t see myself using this in anything else. Perhaps I am just unaware of how to use it. Everything else I’ve ever ordered from Burlap and Barrel has been exceptional!
