Great Value Bay Leaves are a must-have in the kitchen for both seasoned chefs and beginner cooks that are experimenting and exploring new recipes. These whole, dried leaves have a fragrance that is herbal, slightly floral, and will remind you of the aroma from oregano and thyme. Bay leaves are a staple in many different cuisines, including European, French, and Caribbean. Leave bay leaves to steep in soups and stews, or use in marinades for chicken for a complex, mild flavor. For best use, add whole to dishes while cooking or marinating to impart flavor, and remove the leaves before serving.
