Spice House owners Patty and Tom Erd were married for many years when Patty tried something new by tossing a few bay leaves in with her roast pork chops. She received the best possible compliment from her husband: "What did you do? These are as good as my Mom’s!" .
When ordering bulk bay leaves, as well as herbs, remember that they are very light. One-half ounce of these bay leaves is quite a lot, around 1 cup in volume.
