B is for Bay

Some friends gave us a few branches of bay leaves for Christmas.  I strip the leaves off and put them between the pages of a heavy book to flatten them out.

Because they don’t dry curly it makes them tidier to store and just in case I make Hasselback potatoes, they slip neatly between the potato slices.

I use a hefty book such as Larousse Gastronomique.
