For best results…
Gently cut netting with scissors to remove braid without injury to bulbs.
Find the little string hook on the back of the braid and hang in a cool, dry place, preferably out of direct heat and sunlight.
To use in the kitchen…
Twist off one bulb at a time, working from top to bottom – the bulbs at the bottom have the longest stems so they will stay fresh the longest (nine months to a year to be exact)!
In about 10-14 days the Bay leaves will dry and turn a lighter green color and become more brittle. That is when they are great to cook with! Just pull off a leaf and use it right away. Or you can pull several, let them air dry and then store in a sealed jar. They’ll be good for about a year.
* Please note that bay is toxic to animals if consumed.
