- Fetzer's Own California Bay Leaf
Fetzer's Own California Bay Leaf
California bay laurel. I hand select each leaf from our own old bay tree for perfection and health. This is not the Greek bay leaf (Laurus nobilis) commonly sold at the stores, but the harder to find California bay laurel (Umbellularia californica). If you have not cooked with this plant before, use about half as much as you do of storebought bay leaves in your recipe. Makes a perfect addition to lentils, beans, soups, stews, spaghetti, chilis and other savory dishes!
