Member's Mark Whole Bay Leaves (2 Ounce)
Members Mark Whole Bay Leaves are aromatic and fragrant seasoning leaves that make an oversized impact on any dish they enter. They have been used for centuries to add a distinctive flavor to rice and beans, especially in Indian and Middle Eastern cuisine. Their taste is less pleasant than their aroma, so when cooking with bay leaves it is better not to eat them and to remove from your dish before serving (though sometimes they do make a lovely garnish). The taste if eaten is sharp and bitter. But as with similar herbs and spices, the fragrance is different than the taste. When dried, organic bay leaves have an herbal fragrance and slightly floral nose. Though slightly different, it could be compared to oregano or thyme.
