It would be lovely if we could grow bay laurel up here but the Winters are far too cold. We’re fortunate that one of our Valley friends also has a house down on the Coast.
And in their yard, is a bay laurel. They often share their supply of harvested bay laurel leaves and we appreciate it. I sometimes wonder if I should get a small laurel and just keep it in the house.
After picking, just let them air dry for at least a week. When you walk by, run your fingers through the leaves to fluff them up and expose all the leaves to the air. After they dry, put them into a glass mason jar. Tuck a jar or two in the pantry – they make a wonderful addition to all kinds of soups and stews. Just remember to remove the bay leaf before serving.
