An essential ingredient in Mediterranean dishes, bay leaves add a sharp, warm flavor to soups, sauces, and marinades. They release their flavor slowly, so add them early in the cooking process. And be sure to remove them before serving.
We source our Spice Islands® bay leaves from California, known for strong bay leaves with a more concentrated aroma and potent flavor. They’re so potent, in fact, that we recommend using 1/3 of a leaf in recipes that call for a whole leaf.
The long, tapered leaves are handpicked and carefully dried to ensure they remain unbroken.
Our Bay Leaves are only bay leaves. Spice Islands® spices and herbs dont contain added sugar, fillers, or other ingredients so you get the most authentic flavor every time.
