A Bay Laurel Grows in the Maymont Herb Garden

October 22, 2010 at 11:07 am Leave a comment

The bay laurel (Laurus Nobilis) in the herb garden at Maymont is easy to recognize.  It is an evergreen shrub and is situated in the back left of the brick paths in the herb  garden.  Dried bay laurel leaves are used in hearty stews, soups and to flavor meat dishes.  Whole dried bay leaves kept out of the light and stored in airtight jars will retain their flavor for up to two years.  Leaves harvested from the bay laurel at Maymont have been dried and packaged.  These packages will be available at the 3rd Annual Deck the Halls Silent Auction November 18.
