Bay Leaves, Turkish, Whole

These leaves have a milder flavor, but more complex flavor than that of domestic bay. They add a subtly sweet astringency to dishes. Just one or two are needed to heighten the flavor of a whole pot roast, stew or soup.
Also available as Powdered and Whole, Organic

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.
