Whole Dried Bay Leaves from Italy

Sicilian bay leaves, known for their delicate herbal aroma and menthol-like lift, impart an essential savory element to soups, stocks, broths and braises. The Gangi family harvests their Sicilian bay leaves at their peak during mid-summer, keeping the branches intact and air-drying them to lock in their nuanced flavor. More mild than California bay leaves, Sicilian bay leaves can be used in any recipe that calls for the Turkish or Mediterranean variety.

How to use

Use Gangi Dante Sicilian Bay Leaves to add depth to a simmering pot of Castelluccio Lentils or Cannellini Beans from Casa Corneli. Toss a leaf into the braising liquid for short ribs, lamb shanks and other meats. Or, make your own bouquet garni by plucking a single leaf off the branch and wrapping it around sprigs of parsley and Gangi Dante Thyme.

These dried Herbs a Must

Dried bay, thyme and oregano are a high quality. No impurities or mold found. I have had the oregano before and it kept a clean flavor for a long time. Bay leaf has a wonderful complex flavor. Worth buying all three.
