Herb of the Year!

Bay everyday

Yesterday, I said on Pinterest (Please<a href="http://Follow Me on Pinterest“> ) that I use bay leaves in my cooking everyday. I have ever since Bay was the herb of the year in 2009. I said this while promoting yesterday’s kumquat post by pinning on Pinterest one of the pictures of the “Brandied Spiced Kumquats” that I took when I was finished making them. This innocent statement sparked an idea in me to document my everyday bay usage. So, today, I made two quarts of quick carrot pickles with (extra) bay leaves (of course!) using a recipe that I found in a recent issue of Whole Living magazine. When I put the finished jars in the fridge along with yesterday’s jars of kumquats I was struck with how much these two culinary projects look alike! One of these orange twins is sweet and the other one is savory. I must be craving beta carotene these days…
