Benefits of Bay Leaf
Harvesting Bay Leaf
You can start to harvest bay once the plant is a couple of years old. The leaves should be dried before use, as fresh bay is bitter. The best wait time is around 48 to 72 hours from the time you pick a leaf. I know you get long dried bay leaves at the store, but the freshly dried leaves have better, deeper flavor. After all, you aren t going to all this trouble for nothing.
