The bay tree, native to the Mediterranean, is a small, shrublike evergreen with aromatic leaves. Dried bay is available whole to flavor soups and stews) or ground for stocks and marinades). Bay leaves are used primarily to flavor soups and stews, especially fish stews and gumbo. The flavor of bay is subtle, but helps blend other herb/spice flavors. In cooking, add the the leaves at the beginning, as heat and moisture increase the flavor, as cutting does also.

I had not used ground bay leaf before, but I am glad I decided to try it. I like this product. The price was so good, I ordered enough to share with my daughter and my sister.

This is a great concept to find ground bay leaves. I mix up jars of spice blends (like Cajun, Moroccon, etc.) and when it calls for a bay leaf, I can just mix this into the mixture. So if I use a teaspoon of the mix, I have some bay leaf in it.
