arrow

Bay leaf, also known as laurel leaf, is an aromatic herb commonly used in cooking to add flavor and fragrance to dishes. It comes from the bay laurel tree and has a long, oval shape with a deep green color and a shiny, leathery texture. Bay leaves have a subtle, herbal flavor with hints of mint and eucalyptus, and they are often used whole in soups, stews, sauces, and braises to infuse dishes with their essence. Bay leaves are typically removed before serving as they can be tough and indigestible, but they impart a rich and savory aroma that enhances the overall taste of the dish. Additionally, bay leaves are believed to have medicinal properties and have been used in traditional medicine for their potential digestive and anti-inflammatory benefits.
