*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.

We’ve never tried ground bay leaves in our recipes. And, have not had much success with the flavor imparted from the whole leaves. The conversion 1bay leave= 1/8 tsp ground is so simple. No picking through the cooked recipe to discard the leave. Of course, you have the option to adjust your measurement according to your taste. We found 1/8 tsp. rounded slightly was right on for us. Very happy with the product.
The bay leaves now are involved in my current favorite cooking-anything with a Morrocan flavor…meaning taste and flair. Almost anything that requires a little liquid and heat has Laurel Bay Leaves floating along. Subtle and still notice a difference. Yummy
Much more flavor than bay from store shelves.
Large, flavorful leaves. I am a stickler about Best By dates, however, and these do not have a date anywhere.
Great product. It creates an aroma in the kitchen unlike anything else when they are prepared. Heating one of these leaves and water is the best way to prepare them to make any meal amazing.
