Bay (laurel) leaf bay (laurel) leaves

There are several varieties of the bay leaf and they all form part of the Laurel family. It is added to soups and stews more for the slightly sweet aroma than for any distinct flavor. I read somewhere that fresh bay leaves are not as aromatic as after they have been dried. I’m not in a position to say since I have only used the dried kind.
