These are a good buy if you do alot of soups, Italian dishes, stews, and Mediterranean cooking. They store well in the freezer, and the size and quality make the bulk item a good value.
Love the spice

Large Bay Leaves
By: Joanne - Stafford, VA Apr 25, 2015
These Turkish Bay Leaves have much more flavor than their California counterpart. They are large so you don't usually have to use more than one in soups, stews and sauces.

So... I have this wonderful spice drawer that fits all of my Spice etc. jars perfectly. They all line up and the labels are easy to see. Then...somebody at your company decided to change the size and shape of the small bottles. So now I have to save the small bottles and pour the contents from the new bottles into them. That being said...We do love the spices and herbs we order from your company.
Thank you, Susan Whatfrod
