 Edible Uses: Leaves - fresh or dried. A spicy, aromatic flavouring, bay leaves are commonly used as  flavouring for soups, stews etc and form an essential ingredient of the herb mix 'Bouquet Garni'. The leavescan be used fresh or are harvested in the summer and dried. The flavour of freshly dried, crushed or shreddedleaves is stronger than fresh leaves, but the leaves should not be stored for longer than a year since theywill then lose their flavour.
