Bay Leaf, Turkish
$6.35 – $13.60
Rejected in love, Apollo changed the nymph Daphne into the tree, ordering that all who excel in courage, civil service and the creation of beauty be crowned with the evergreen leaves of the bay laurel. Such wreaths crowned the winning athletes of ancient Olympics.
With a sweet balsamic-like aroma and a bitter yet spicy kick, the flavor adds the perfect touch to slow-cooked dishes, such as stews, soups, stocks, sauces, beans, and gravies.
