SUGGESTED USEBay can be used to flavour both sweet and savoury dishes; the best flavour for cooking however is obtained from dried leaves rather than fresh. Add to pates, soups, stews and casseroles, bay works well with meat, fish and poultry. Try adding a few leaves to delicately scent custards for serving with poached peaches or apricots. Dried leaves can used to make winter wreaths and decorations, and make excellent additions to pot pourri. Tip: Always remove bay leaves from a dish prior to freezing it, bay leaf goes very bitter on freezing and will impart that bitterness to your dish when reheated.
Shelf LifeShelf life of two years provided that goods are stored in an airtight container in ambient conditions.
