Bay leaves are aromatic leaves mostly used in cooking. The dried variety of these leaves has a longer shelf-life than the fresh one which makes this fragrant plant available all year long. The flavour of bay leaves intensifies after drying. Dried bay leaves usually don’t have any specific or distinctive taste, but they add depth to other flavours of the dishes you are making.

General Information

Bay leaves are the aromatic leaves of the laurel tree. This herb is one of the most popular culinary herbs which has a scent somewhat reminiscent of oregano and thyme. The tree itself is widely cultivated all over the world in North America, Central America, India, Russia, France, Italy, Turkey, Spain, and Mexico. Although bay leaves are available fresh, they are usually added to recipes in dried form as dried bay leaves or ground bay leaves because of their stronger scent.

Health Benefits

Although bay leaves are not consumed for their health benefits, it should be noted that they do contain nutrients such as vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin B6, manganese, iron, and calcium. Moreover, bay leaves and ground bay leaves are considered safe when used in small amounts found in recipes.

Delicious Ways to Use Bay Leaves

Bay leaves are usually added to many slow-cooked recipes from around the world to add the distinctive bay leaf aroma to the meal but they are not consumed. In fact, they are removed from the meal before serving because they do not soften during cooking. Bay leaves can be added to a variety of meals such as soups, sauces, and stews. They are most popular in Spanish, French, Indian, and Thai cuisines.


Bay leaves should be kept in a tightly sealed container in a cool, dry place such as a spice cabinet. To help the bay leaves retain more of their flavour, storing them in the freezer is a good idea.
