Olu Olu® Bay leaves are used in cooking for their distinctive flavour and fragrance. They’re used in soups, stews, meat, seafood, vegetable dishes, and sauces. The leaves are most often used whole and removed before serving. They can also be crushed or ground before cooking. Crushed bay leaves impart more of their desired fragrance, but should be put in a muslin bag or tea infuser.
Bay leaves can be used to flavour vinegars and pâtés, and in pickling and marinades. Long cooking draws out the aroma of this herb and most braised, poached and stewed dishes benefit from the addition of a bay leaf, as do soups, stocks and risottos. Add a bay leaf when braising red or pickled cabbage, to poaching liquid for fish, or to infuse the milk for custard or rice pudding.
