Ingredient - Bay Leaf

Updated November 1st, 2022


Bay leaves are oval in shape, measuring about 2 inches to 4 inches in length and tapered to a slender point.

When fresh, these short stemmed, dark green leaves are smooth with a glossy sheen and have a light green underside.



When dried the leaves have a brittle texture and the edges of the leaf are jagged and slightly curled.

Crushing the dried leaves releases a strong scent of menthol and eucalyptus.

When cooked, the more bitter and astringent qualities of the leaf mellow, leaving a nuanced savory and slightly sweet tea like flavor with mild hints of pepper, clove, and mint.


Usually found in the Herbs Aisle.



Tips and Hacks
Don't throw pasta up against the wall to see if it's cooked. This is a myth and makes the wall really hard to clean. Pasta is al dente when it starts to float in the boiling water.
