Mexican Bay Leaves (Laurel) are sourced from an evergreen shrub native to Mexico. Prized for their herbal flavor, they are widely used in Latin American cuisine in soups, stews, braised meats, seafood and marinades. The bay leaf is a robust herb that benefits from long cooking. It is best in dishes that are boiled, simmered or stewed. Add the leaves to the boiling water when cooking potatoes, beans or rice.
