A whole leaf of the laurel tree, ranging from 1 to 3 inches in length and from 1/2 to 1 inch in width. The leaves are silvery-green in color and impart a flavor that is fragrant, sweet and aromatic with just a slightly bitter taste. Durkee Bay Leaves use only imported bay leaves from Turkey. Many competitors use domestic leaves. You will find that the imported leaves have a much smoother flavor and are more complementary to food products ,while domestic leaves are more bitter and have a strong menthol flavor. Use whole and remove for meat and vegetable stews, casseroles, pot roast, vegetables, beans, ham, curry stews, fish chowders, BBQ ribs, meat and fish sauces and pasta sauces. Crush to use in making pickling spices for pickles, crab and shellfish boils, bouquet garni and corned beef. Use 1 leaf per 4 servings. Use at the beginning of the cooking process and is best when used in a slow, long cooking process allowing the full flavor of the leaf to be released. Be sure to remove whole leaf before serving food as the vein becomes brittle and is not easily digested. Can also be crushed before adding to foods.
