The Essential of Bay Leaf What is bay leaf The aromatic leaf from the bay laurel tree is an essential component of the classic bouquet garni: parsley, thyme, and a bay leaf. The bittersweet, spicy leaves impart their pungent flavor to various dishes and ingredients, making bay a versatile store cupboard ingredient. It’s also one of the few herbs that don’t lose its flavor when dried. How to use bay leaf Bay leaf is typically used to season long-cooking dishes like soups, stews, and braises, but it can also enhance the flavor of quicker-cooking dishes like risotto, pasta sauce, or even a simple pot of rice. The key is to have at least a little liquid for the bay to infuse and heat to get the process going. Perfect for Slow-Cooked Dishes Bay leaves are meant to cook in red beans for at least an hour to distill their essence. One or two whole leaves should be enough, although some cooks use more. Don’t grind bay leaves into powder or cut them into small pieces. Frozen Leaves Stay Fresh Longer Don’t store your bay leaves at room temperature if you can help it. Freezing (or at least refrigerating) them will ensure that they retain their flavors for much longer. Some cooks also use fresh bay leaves, mainly when a tree grows nearby, but dried ones should be the go-to choice for red beans and rice, as the flavor is more intense. A staple of today’s French pantry, the bay leaf also is a frequent component of the classic bouquet garni, along with other herbs such as parsley, thyme, basil, oregano, or whatever a recipe might require. Precautions While the bay leaf is generally considered safe, it isn’t recommended for pregnant or nursing mothers since bay leaf could cause uterine contractions. Also, it is recommended people should stop eating bay leaf two weeks before any surgery, especially if it’s related to the central nervous system. 18 Benefits of Bay Leaves (No.9 Best for Health) Scientific Checked Bay leaves are commonly used as one of the cooking ingredients.
