Bay Leaves, Turkish, Whole

These whole Turkish bay 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.

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.
