Organic Bay Leaf Frontier

Bay Leaf with Bounty, Hand Selected

Peruvian Chicken SoupFrontier Co-op Organic Bay Leaf is the real deal. Only “true” bay leaves from the botanical laurus nobilis are cultivated. Hand-selected in Turkey, only the top few percent of leaves are washed, dried and sold. As a result, the bay leaf’s nuanced flavors — hints of mint, thyme, oregano, coriander and clove — are always perfectly balanced.

Parsley with Potency, Superior Flavor

Gruyere Mushroom TartPremium parsley is more than just a garnish. This Organic Flat Leaf Parsley boasts a fuller flavor than its curly-leaved cousins. And because the plants are moved quickly from the field to the drying facility, you get the richest, freshest-tasting parsley possible.
