BAY LEAF – There’s nothing in this bottle but pure, organic, Premium Hand Select Grade true bay laurel leaves (Laurus nobilis). No GMOs. No ETO (considered carcinogenic by the EPA). Not irradiated. Certified Organic by QAI. Kosher Certified by KSA. Sweet, earthy aroma. Savory, balsamic, good-bitter flavor. This is the true bay experience. You may not know it when you taste it, but you know when it’s missing. That stew or seafood dish just seem to need something? This is it. FLAVORFUL AND AROMATIC – Our bay leaves are Premium Hand Select Grade. This means that after mechanical sorting, two rounds of hand selection are done to ensure that these leaves are the best of the best. Only about 1% of all bay leaves meet the criteria for this grade. The leaves are then dried and shipped in time to be packaged for the current holiday season — providing the fresh, robust flavor of recently harvested bay. ORGANIC FROM TURKEY – Relationships matter. People matter. In Turkey, laurel leaf collection is traditionally a side-source of income for families. But younger people are leaving the area for more lucrative city jobs. We and our sustainable sourcing partner Kutas are working with a collector cooperative that is adding value for its members by drying and processing bay leaves themselves. PURE AND POTENT FLAVOR – Simply Organic believes in pure and potent flavor grown at the source. Our rigorous standards mean that we know precisely what you’re getting, and from where. All of our products are grown and processed without the use of toxic pesticides, irradiation, or GMOs. ABOUT US – Simply Organic is a 100% certified organic line of spices, seasoning mixes, and baking flavors. Our pure, potent spices, seasonings and extracts bring real bite to everything you make, eat and share. Our goal, through our Simply Organic Giving Fund, is to help the millions of food insecure by not only providing funds and support to make organic food more accessible, but also in developing the next generation of leaders in sustainable and socially just organic agriculture.

    First of all, I like the Simply Organic spices, herbs over all others. They all seem very fresh. Have been throwing out a lot of my spices and replacing with fresh ones. When I received this, I opened it up, and smelled the Bay leaf, and it smells very fresh. Would definitely recommend this brand. Prompt delivery.

    In a world of plastics I loved that these fabulous bay leaves came in a glass jar! They are fresh, full and only a few broken. Great value.

    Great price! Fresh and adds that hidden flavor to your soups and stews. Will buy again! So expensive in the grocery stores.

    I use bay leaves in cooking a lot, mostly in soups, particularly french onion soup. These are my favorite, especially with the glass jar. The ones in the supermarket, even in the jar, never seem as fresh as these when I order them from Amazon so I have them on a subscribe and save so I get them on a regular interval. They seem to always arrive fresh and fragrant and even when I get to the end of the jar they are still pretty good. The jars come with a freshness seal under the lid, underneath a shaker lid, which at first seemed odd, but I keep them and when I am done I make my own rub and seasoning mixtures and put them in these jars so they can be re-used.

    I have had a difficult time lately trying to find bay leaves that actually smell like they should and flavor whatever I’m cooking. I have tried many different brands but none of them have any taste or smell. Zero. When I received these I opened the top and the smell was amazing! I was so excited that I even had my husband smell them. He couldn’t believe the difference. They added lovely flavor to a soup that I made. The expiration date was in 2024 so they’re pretty fresh. I will be reordering these again. I’m a happy girl.

    More flavor than the  Spice Islands Bay Leaves , these are replacing. This jar contains 24 Very Large to Large fragrant bay leaves. Most are over twice the size as  McCormick Gourmet Collection, Turkish Bay Leaves . These leaves seem to have more of their natural oil/s retained. Left a nice flavor in the stew I just made with them.

    We have not converted to Organic Natural products yet; however, if we find more foods such as these Bay Leaf products there may be another pair of newbies. We have our favorites and every now and then we want a change that will add flavor and strong taste. In these bay leaves we found just that: sizeable leaves that have not been crushed into dust and an abundance of taste that most picky folks would love. We do.If anyone has read any of our other reviews it is quite apparent that we love pasta meals with an Italian emphasis ..Bay leaves are an integral part of that and these just enhance the flavors far better than we imagined. If you listen carefully, you will hear the bay leaves talking to the oregano and Italian spices about what’s cooking now. Hot diggity dog. No hot dogs tonight.

    Consumer Reports did a recent feature on harmful elements found in spices. This brand was found safe.

    Bay leaves, Bay laurel, or “Laurus nobilis” are cultivated in France, Spain, Italy, Morocco, Yugoslavia, China, Israel, Turkey and Russia.” The exact harvest location of our jar will not be specified, but have little worries. It is certified USDA organic and Kosher. Why is that important?Similar to non-organic food, many spices are treated with chemicals (pesticides and herbicides), contain GMOs and are irradiated. Most of us aren’t super familiar with the process of irradiation. Radiation is used to kill bacteria and other contaminants, leaving the finished product with decreased levels of vitamins and natural enzymes. Irradiation also changes the chemical composition of a spice, potentially creating toxic, carcinogenic by-products in the food. Furthermore irradation increasing our exposure to free radicals. Yikes!Nearly all spices sold in the United State  are fumigated (sterilized) with chemicals that are banned in Europe. Hazardous stuff! Thankfully, was have an affordable alternative in the Simply Organic line. I’m not an endorsed reviewer, but I really like their spices. Neither do I mean to sound “preachy,” but, we really do need to be aware of what we’re putting inside our bodies. Continuing on…There are approximately 25 or so whole leaves in the jar. A few are broken, but that should be expected. They are potent and perfect for your stews, soups, and gravies. We are vegetarians and rely heavily on the bay leaf to add a nice bitter/sweet taste to our bean dishes.The tall glass jar (Yes, glass! It can easily be reused, repurposed, or recycled nicely.) comes with a plastic shaker cap, and a metal screw-on lid. It’s important to check the expiration date on our spices to prevent staleness or lack of potency. The bottom of Simply Organic bottles have a “best by” date to assure that you’re not getting sold old stock.Remember to store all of your spices in a cool, dark location.Bon appetit!
