Bay leaves add
quite a flavor to soups and sauces, but most of us tend to
leave bay leaves sitting in our spice cupboard for months,
if not years. Unfortunately, bay leaves lose dramatic potency
the longer they are stored in your cupboard, even in a closed
spice jar. So how should you store your bay leaves?
the freezer. Simply put them into Ziploc bag, and put them
on your freezer shelf or in the shelves on the door. They
will stay nearly as fresh as if you had just bought them new.
Replace every six months to a year optimum flavour.
