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 (1/2 teaspoon is approximately equivalent to 1 whole fresh bay leaf) in soups, stews and as a rub for roasted meats and veggies.

Much more than expected
I haven’t cooked with the bay leaves yet, but they smell wonderful. I was surprised at how many bay leaves I got for the price. It was a lot!! Now I need to with find some recipes that use Lots of bay leaves or make a wreath for the kitchen. All I usually use them for is spaghetti sauce. Got any good ideas?
Wow, I was skeptical about this, but I cook a lot of beans and soups and go through a lot of bay leaves. When I opened the jar I was blown away by the fragrance, and couldn’t wait to use it. I must say it is absolutely as stated on B&B’s site, and a little goes a long way.
Perfect for beans and soups
Good substitute for whole leaves, especially when cooking beans. Highly recommend.
Rich smell and great leaf alternative
So happy to have bought this - there are some days that a bay powder is the right dash instead of a full leaf.
umami flavor in a jar
I was a bit hesitant at first to use this spice however, I'm sold now! I use the recommended amount to substitute for a bay leaf (printed on the jar). It adds a nice depth of flavor. My husband commented the first time I used it - he loved it!
Bay Leaf Respite
What a joy not to pick through dried bay leaves looking for the best ones.
Easy way to use bay leaves
I just love this adaption of bay leaves so much. It seems much more fresh than the dried bay leaves I’ve used in the past. Great on chicken, soups, stews, chili, hmmm everything.
Ground bay leaf
I never appreciated the bay leaf until I stated playing with B&B ground bay leaf. A very happy spice that I use every day.
