Natural Bay Leaves
The bay leaf is an aromatic leaf commonly used in cooking. It can be used whole, or as dried and ground.
Bay leaves are also used in the making of jerk chicken in the Caribbean Islands. The bay leaves are soaked and placed on the cool side of the grill. Pimento sticks are placed on top of the leaves and the chicken is placed on top and smoked. The leaves are also added whole to soups, stews, and other Caribbean dishes.
