[CnD] Bay leaves RE: (no subject)

When I have a recipe calling for "Bay leaves" I use an old fashion Tea Ball
. In this tea Ball I can also put pepper corns celery leaves or any other
spice or herb called for that needs to be removed before serving.

That would work, or wrapping the leaves/spices in cheesecloth, knotting it
closed, and dangling the part with overhang over the saucepan and holding it
in place with the lid!

Hi Jill,
When I raised the question of retrieving a bay leaf, Someone suggested using
a tea ball. I haven't tried it but it sounds like it would work. Nancy

Nancy, I think you are correct in not substituting Old Bay seasoning.  It
seems to me that I remember having a ground bay leaf spice at one time but
perhaps I'm mistaken about this.  I break my bay leaf up as fine as I can
and add it to whatever I am using it in; this works for me and I don't know
how a blind cook could fish it out otherwise.  Jill

Hi everyone,

Lots of soup and/or sauce recipes call for a bay leaf.  However, I have some
Old Bay Seasoning which is used for fish.  Am I right to think I couldn't
substitute the seasoning for a bay leaf?

Looking forward to your words of wisdom

Since I've lost mine,
